So would these still be a good wheel considering their age?

"Hugger" and "Fanjet" are 2 different wheels....the wheels in that pic are Fanjets....and yes they will still be good you can either sand them to break the glaze (if you know how) or send them to Dan Beaver and have them cut a little.

So how does one go about sanding the glaze off. I am assuming you would use a fine grit paper or maybe even a wet sand? I might be willing to try that.
The glaze would not come off with a few good hockey stops hehe?

I would STRONGLY discourage anyone from attempting to SAND off the glaze of a wheel...

It would be nearly impossible to sand it all of.. at a consitant depth...on ALL 8 wheels...

MUCH easier to let Dan Beaver deal with your wheels.. regrove... and youll be set..

i do it all the time with great results....but yes Dan can get them back to like new again...but then i turn around and sand the lines off for better grip!

thanks, its been so long since I have put on my roller skates, I might have to give these a lath job and try them out again.
How do these whells rank any ways? fast, slow, grippy, training wheels, session wheels give away wheels?

thanks for the help

has anyone heard of gyro's? i was skateboarding more before i started roller skating again and they were a skateboard brand that switched to rollerskate wheels about when i made my switch, around 1980 or so. they were my favorite wheel, but when i look it up now all i find is some kind of inline wheel or a dance wheel of some kind.

My original Fan Jets that I still own, the package read Vanguard Jumbo Hugger Fan Jets and they are orange. They might not be made by Hugger but they did have Hugger on the wrapper when I opened them.

Default Question?

Hi all. I had a pair of Reidell skates back in the early 80's and they came with these wheels that I believe were called White Lightings?? They were white, very small in diameter, hard as can be and super wide. They had metal "deep dish" hubs.
Has any one seen wheels like these?
Scott
