Spitfire wheels are manufactured in a way that allows them to avoid shape constraining molds like other wheels out there. Each wheel is shaped and designed for function and speed no matter what style or shape you ride. Spitfire is committed to making the fastest, longest lasting wheels available.
Went to the shop in Cleveland and picked up a set of these for my new board. They have a TON of speed and don't mush out like my last pair of flip sidecut wheels. Don't listen to anyone who says they flat spot easily because I have no problems with sliding. Obviously they won't hold up if all you want to do is slide so go for the spitfire formula four instead.

Spitfire Classic Skateboard Wheels
Adult skater, 25 years riding. Local skatepark has a tennis-court like surface. I rode Darkstars for years, not specifically for their "flatspot-proof" formula. But when I gave a set of spitfires a try, I flatspotted them with less than 1 hour riding on them. I'd never flatspotted any Darkstars. Haven't flatspotted any Bones wheels. Inferior urethane - won't go Spitfire again.
