I'm gonna call my boy over at Skate One (Bones) and see what's up with that. I'm less than an hour away from them. If they have them there I may just have to go pick em up.... maybe

I would never race anything that narrow and that large(personally), but then again if I race outside, I'm rolling a red clear urethane RBT (85A) 62mm x 38mm

gotta any pix of your skate? love to see em
First skates I ever rolled with V-R 65mm wheels in 2007. Back then I had too little wheel experience to even know how much better than everything else they were.


Then I did my first carbon fiber all glue mount:


I soon discovered the fraternal twin of the V-R wheels, the RD Twister:


One of the top speed skaters in the nation uses them as his workout wheels on super slick floors


A later rebuild of my avatar PIC skate:


My 70mm Twister wheel 1000 gram outdoor 1/2 marathon racing setup


These V-R 65mm wheels were dyed all black for an all black Bont.QRC -Skins build:


I do have a virgin in plastic wrap set of the rare black V-R wheels in 65mm, but it would take some serious $ to liberate them:

I use outdoor currently:

Race:
RD Twister 70mm - what else ;-)

Recreational:
Kryptonics Roadrunner 70mm 78A - for speed training and very rough surfaces
Kryptonics Impulse 58mm 78a - even small diameter nice to skate outdoor on streets
Lazer X Tech Blaze VI from India

70mm 80A - amazing wheels, I love them every day a bit more

I love some of the Lazer stuff. I do find a wear issue with some of them.

I use the Lazer Matrix, but do not think they produce these any more. They are a 70mm wheel 80A duro.
