Try the Cult Converters or Classics

Thane lines mean SFA. If you want thane try Butterballs & Bootlegs, if you want wheels that are good for DH & freeride try 80a Race Forms or Cult Death Rays are good for DH when fresh & are nice for freeride when worn with good roll speed.

Not sure what you mean by dh/freeride with thane, but I broke in some orange heats and they're still grippy as hell but have a real smooth predictable slide. Even leave some thane on long slides, and you can probs get them cheap 2nd hand since everyone hates on otang

i mean freeride or dh wheel

you gotta understand that Dh and Freeride are two different things dude. when people talk "DH" wheels its usually referring to bigger, sharp lipped wheels. wheels that are designed to grip, designed to race carve and provide speed and control. these wheels will slow you down well when sliding and are more aimed for faster riding, long corners and racetracks.

freeride wheels are more designed for slower riding, on hills in your local neighbourhood where theres far more sliding involved. these wheels will be smaller, in a shape with rounded lips, maybe a stone ground finish and in a thane that provides less traction to the road. these wheels will wear down far quicker than DH wheels because they are designed to, when the wheels slide they will just sugar away leaving long thane lines and allow you to slide at slower speeds and mantain momentum, allowing more tricks in the one run without having to pick up too much speed.

now take that info and apply it to your riding. what riding are you doing? what is your definition of 'DH'? are you taking yourself to a 10km long mountain road filled with tight sweeping bends and hairpin turns that require sliding and slowing down for, or is your version of DH hitting a local neighbourhood run and hitting like 60km/h for a few seconds and stopping?

dose it matter what board is use if so i have tjen sector 9 tiffany with paris v2s and 70s flachbacks

it is going fast down a hill then sliding into another street

doesnt matter what board, and dont worry about using racing wheels. you will have more fun on something more icy

thank you vary much :}]

Definitely Road Riders

Road Rider has been around since the 70's and was the first company to ever put precision bearings in a skateboard wheel.  They've returned to the sport in a big way this year with a massive R&D program that appears to have paid big dividends."
