What is everyone using for center wheels these days?  Hard to find Boro right now.

I have like 4 or 5 sets of the old graphic boros, I rotate them often. I also believe I have a couple sets of the old centers, (maybe 1 brand new), and a set of oh boys (brand new). You should be able to acquire a set of boros, just get up with @coach and he can probably sell you a pair.

Im rollin those orange Labeda Asphalts.  My favorite is the old mac o boys.  Got one new set left, and might be scoring a couple more new sets soon. I think/assume the old freebord centers are plenty good if you are going 30-40 mph often/ever. I have boros but have never ridden them much....and dont go very fast so the durability isn't a bonus I take advantage of.

@flisms I personally love the boros, mainly because of the flat profile. They are very nice for center wheeling. I just wish they would have kept the old graphic with the viking serpent.

@suntorn true that. The mac o boys have a similar (wide) profile to the boros.  Would love to try some of those SUPER wide center wheels some of the euro riders have been using. (and Bently)

@flisms I've been a fan of super wide center wheels for a long time !
It gives more confort on any terrain and more stability too.

@fabien_bien I can design a wide caster hanger for the JMK ride wheel the moment my boards touch down.
