Shamans or Canibals. And for racing wear them down to about 30% tread to cut foot print down to almost nothing, run the hardest wheel that will grip the floor.

The quality of shamans isnt there anymore. Their wheels have a pigment for the whites, they arent natural at all, they shear back horribly fast and arent worth their money.

I'm sure someone out there can get you any set of turbos you want within reasonable time. Get on the group Skate Addiction on FB several good sellers on there have stock of wheels or access to virtually anything you'd want.

What is your weight, what plate and boot?

Shamans work well on the floors I skate and have great tread life, better than most skate wheels I have ran in the past, with the exception of Scotts.

Iíve had Anabolix wheels recommended to me multiple times, but they canít keep their products in stock. Been checking their website weekly for weeks.

you did ask for the BEST wheels, which are Scott's! not average wheels, not ok wheels or 2nd or 10th best - The BEST. I noticed the post dates and 3 weeks have now gone by, a DHL or FEDEX delivery form OZ usually only takes 4-6 days. So these could have been run in and ready to race on by now.

If he has any available. Lots of work for bont , and hes got the kiddo and wifey too , so they come first

Most people are waiting very few people are getting wheels ordered and shipped quickly.

I've had good success in a timely dashing because I am not at all picky on colors or duros, I've worked with Scott to order wheels that fit well into his schedule. This makes things far easier for me to get what I want.

And going back to the original post I'd say a month to wait isn't really all that long in the big scheme of things. You'll be using these wheels for a while, and you probably have perfectly good wheels right now so be a wee bit patient and just wait (assuming these are still the ones you want following the advice given of course).

Nice,

But...
Australia right? Heh, I only know of 2 places someone can readily get Scott's wheels by talking to someone here in the states. And on occasion, they may not have any, or at least any they'll let go of

Do you have anything that is about 96A? I use orange cannibals and Labeda Stilettos, both about that hard.
