PostSubject: Ander Wheels: Urethane Wheels Made In The USA (100 Sets IN STOCK)   Mon Mar 28, 2016 4:20 pm



Ander Wheels really has been a long work in progress. From trying to find the right materials, to trying to find a producer who was trustworthy and could mass produce the wheels to keep the prices affordable for you guys. It's taken almost a year to get up and running, and I've gone through 4 different production facilities at this point. But FINALLY I am happy to say that we have our first stock in! There are 100 sets available at the moment in white. Pictures are below!




Currently the only place I have to sell them is eBay, here's the link to the sale: http://www.ebay.com/itm/182063729114?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

$7, free shipping! Pick them up while they last!

They aren't too soft, but the shape gives you some solid grip. They're super fun, smooth, and quiet wheels! They have an outer diameter of 7.5mm, with the inside diameter of the bearing at 1.5mm, so they fit perfect on any set of trucks you wanna throw 'em on!

I'm sorry but if these wheels are produced in the United States with the highest material, assuming they aren't made in China, why are they only going for $7? I get that they are some-what affordable, but why $7? If you compare them to other re-sellers of mass-produced Chinese products, they are the exact same price, if not more; With that being said, I'd love to see how these are made!

Bearings are mass produced by SKF Bearings in WNY, and plastic work is done at MVP Plastics, also in WNY. I combine the two by hand at home. While I'd love to make a "how they're made" video, I'd rather not give everyone an idea of how to produce them for this cheap haha. Great producers who do most of the production when they have spare time, I'm definitely not a priority. Not much labor as it's mostly automated. Again, I set out to make a product, in the US, that was affordable and this is the result.

Hmmm. I did a side-by-side comparison of these vs 4cfb, bkfb and starfb bearing wheels.. look exactly the same, down to the shape, size and the look of the bearing..

hm.

I actually used the FlatFace "Street Shape" wheel as my inspiration for my own. Say what you want, I know how and where they're made. It took a year to get a single stock in. I'd say most single bearing wheels look identical. Would raising the price make you feel better? The profit margin right now is very slim as it is so that's a possibility. Just wanted to try to help the community, just didn't realize it was so hostile.

always interesting to see new wheel companies. We can't say anything until someone post a review though so i will wait until a review comes out and then we can discuss them

They look pretty decent, if they really aren't China wheels. They don't look like they're made with urethane, though. Probably gonna try some at $7!

Interested to see if these are as good as they sound.

Don't suppose you'd be able to get a worldwide shipping quote? happy eBay says $15+ for postage, fairly sure it's less than that!

Assuming these aren't china, these look really nice and the price sounds great. Will you have other colors available in the future?

i just bought a set.. the profile definitely looks different than any china wheels ive seen online. granted i dont have any to compare to when i actually get the wheels.. but either way these look nice, the price is crazy good, and i enjoy supporting newer companies with hand made shit. ill post my first thoughts when i get them

Thanks guys! I'm not going to sit here and say that they're at the level of FlatFace or Winkler or anything like that, but they're a dope shape with bearings and a good price! As for more colors, I'm looking into it right now. I can't decide on what color to produce next. I was thinking a mint green would be pretty cool though. Thoughts?

Green is always cool. Im pretty traditional and have always liked a nice looking white wheel. I just snagged a set, looking forward to trying them!

Are these really made of urethane though? Just curious. And I suggest making an actual website brother, versus trying to sell them on ebay. Just my opinion. Best of luck to you, man.

They're a urethane mixture. The plastics plant I work with was using it for making reusable plastic bowls and stuff like that. They made a test batch of wheels for me, and I really liked them so I went with it. They're still a hard wheel though.

These look great man will have to wait for someone to make an actual review of it or buy one myself to see how good these actually are (I can't since I'm not from the US) because I think it'd be unfair and biased if I made comparisons over cheap pictures of other "china" wheels to these without actually having them. Try getting an online store though instead of ebay I'm sure there are lots of free ones out there that provide that service. Again these look awesome

Hmm can't wrap my head around this.
Gonna need to see a review before I form an opinion. 7 dollar wheels, that aren't china? Something's gotta be up... haha. But hey, maybe I'm dead wrong and I'm just being an asshole cyclops

Mine were just shipped so I'll be doing a review on them soon. It's hard for me to wrap my head around it as well, but definitely don't look like China wheels in my opinion. Stoked to get mine and try them out happy

just got my set.. theyre icy smooth, not really grippy, no squeaks, material feels solid (not cheap), and are around the same size as oak rv1's. they work on brt's, and also ytrucks but there is room for movement on the axles but not a crazy amount. my only suggestion would be to make the opening on the back of the wheel bigger because the wheel material sits on the truck part of brt's causing friction, but theyre surprisingly still smooth.. tho i am a bit worried about the material wearing down over time because of this. overall, definitely worth the $7 so far
