Spitfire Wheels was founded in 1987 by Jim Thiebaud through Deluxe Distribution in San Francisco, CA. Spitfire is widely recognized by the classic bighead logo and high-performance urethane. And having some of the top pros, both newcomers and veterans, backing the brand helps to reinforce the quality. Grant Taylor, Ishod Wair, Peter Hewitt, Darren Navarrette, Mason Silva, and Tyshawn Jones are just a few of the big names riding for Spitfire.
But a stacked team can only go so far and that is where Spitfire’s superior product comes into play. The brand offers two main types of urethane including their Classic formula and Formula Four. Formula Four is the latest addition and is favored for its high abrasion resistance which reduces flatspots. Both options are available in softer or harder durometers for more speed or extra grip. Wheel shapes range from conical, radial, tablet, big head, lock-ins, and classic shape. The ability to choose the formula, durometer, and shape makes for a ton of awesome combinations. From crusty street spots to hill bombs and parks, Spitfire has your need for speed covered.
