I'm considering getting offset wheels and I'm looking for some people who have experience with the decomposed budget wheels. How do they compare to more known street wheels in terms of reverts and flatspots?

I'm used to STFs, skated them for years and find them superior to just about anything for reverts. I got a friend with spits f4 99a and one with wrecks. I find them usable on rougher surfaces but too grippy on smooth ones. I've also tried the spitfire classics like 9 years ago and couldn't stand them.

Do you think I'd like the decomposed budget wheels? I was looking more at their harder options, but I'm in Europe an costs get prohibitive on the higher end wheels.

Tell me what type riding you'll be doing on what surfaces—more detail than you've already provided.

As for offset, in-set etc, they basically just wear different and offset provides more grip throughout the wheels life including when they cone out.

I skate a mix of street and freestyle. The axle nut protection would be a pretty big thing for me as I chew up axle nuts fast. I skate all kinds of surfaces: skating rinks which here are gritty concrete, smooth concrete, asphalt and skateparks once a week.

I did not like any of the wheels from decomposed. They all flatspot SUPER EASY. Id go With 'MODE' or' SEISMIC focus'. I've used both and they are amazing with my preference being for SEISMIC focus 55mm.
