Nice to see some wider dubcons on the scene! Any idea on width, running surface 40-45mm+?

Just ordered a set so don’t know about this run. Last batch they did width was around 42mm and running surface was 30mm.

Thanks for the info darb. It would be great if you get the chance, for maybe a review on here, when you've tested them out.

They certainly look nice and are wide, but no core and 95a?
Will be interested to hear what you think, and what kind of surface you'll ride them.

I ordered some of these last week. I’ll give a review and measure size and contact patch when they get in.
They’re destined for a white and pink Alva board. At 95a should be skatepark good.
We’ll see.....

They look like the same shape as there time flys which are shaped after the Santa Cruz church glass wheels.

I have a set now, like I said 60mm x 42mm with a 30mm contact patch. I don’t have a rider to put these wheels on at the moment so I won’t be doing a review anytime soon. Like SoClose said “no core” that is the main things I look for in a wheel. I like the shape of the wheel and crazy color. Last years run had the same dementions but in purple/green.

The time flys which I have are 97a & they are fast enough the problem I have with em is the no cores , no matter how hard I try to put the bearings in properly there is all ways some binding there.

Are you using bearing spacers? You should be if you aren't.

Yes always , I have tried several makes without cores & all are similar.Wheels with cores never have any issue & roll on the axle smoothly.

Using the link above the green highlighted 08790644

There was a thread here that talks about facing truck hangers. This tool cleans up the end of the hanger so bearing fits flush. I just used it on a set of anodized Indy’s and it made a big difference. I’ve used it on non anodized Indy’s and there was very little improvement. I have also used it on a set of older Trackers but there was also very little to no improvement.

Thx for the tip, I just remembered that my sims snake reissues bearings fit like they have a core !
They are the best none core wheels in my opinion.

A non core wheel will always have some flex in the bearing seat area, they can also be poured badly or suffer from wonky moulds. None of this helps keep a bearing running true to the axle and can prevent you tightening down the axle nut fully tight as they should be. Only thing you can do is tighten fully and un-tighten a quarter turn to allow the wheel to spin freely (not ideal) but a lot of skaters who don't know how a bearing is supposed to operate do that and have stupid loose wheel play on their axles.
