So, you tried the hawgs eh? What duro and size? How do they compare to your wheels with scotties thane for outdoor?

I wanna get those sector 9 lumithane wheels narrowed for outdoor night use. Lol

Going to give these bad boys a try. Rider Approved Designs (RAD) Glide 70mm, 80A. They have rounded edges that give a 30mm contact patch. They're also sideset, so no wheel griding is required. The bearing spacing also seems to be a tiny bit smaller, as I'm able to get bite on the nylon portion of the nylock nuts without modifying anything. The wheels also come in 78A (white) and 82A (blue) hardness. I grabbed the set of 8 on Amazon for $67, shipped. (have to check back often, as pricing on Amazon changes quite frequently on different items)

. . . aaaand I finally foiund my outdoor wheels. The RAD Glide wheels were awesome. Rolled them for 12 miles today on our new rail trail that included a bunch of wet leaves and gypsy moth caterpillar crap and had no issues whatsoever. (the moth caterpillars are horrid this year)

The narrow contact patch made for a faster roll and the rounded profile actually felt better than a squared profile does IMO. I rolled the 12 miles in just under 45 minutes, which is a hair above 16mph average, which is actually as fast as I roll my 3x125mm inlines on average.

My daughter is loving a set of old, red Kryptonics Kryptos. But using them indoors too!

I am going to have to try the Rider Approved Designs (RAD) Glide 70mm, 80A.

What other wheels that are 70-90mm and are still in production and do not need modified to work on most skates?

I have the Kryptonics 70mm skate wheels but looking for more options and cheaper prices are better haha.

Has any one tried these? It is a long shot they would be decent but they do look to be all the way side set and are cheap. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Set-of-4-Bla...AAAOSwrfVZW1iL

Would you trust your life to a spoked Chinese-made wheel?

i'm a big fan of the krypto red new route 82a 70mm.
i bought like new krpyto road runner 78a 70mm wheels...same in performance...but lighter.
so i would put them in first position...but really close to new route krypto wheels...for cheap it's the wheel to go....a little bit harder than cruise ...but that's why they roll...

i hope i will found a nice set of hyper strada tp , krypto project tp 2 or a hyper super mundo.

kp tp 2 ..are the easiest to find...hyper strad tp...harder and super mundo..siccc...so difficult .

if soemone are ok to exchange...he's welcome...i have a rare set of french krpyto...the famous krpytoto..and velocitiy races wheels too.

You might over estimate the speed I am going to be achieving

Forgot to mention Velocity Race. Have 2 sets, 1 still in the blister pack. Their roll is awesome but not so great for the surfaces I roll.

This is only my opinion. The only difference I saw was the fact that my Stradas were 65mm tall and the Krypts were 70mm. I didn't like that height difference and plus that plays into the rebound effect of the thane too so ... I think if the hub had a been a bit bigger I could've gotten used to 5mm diff in height.
