PostSubject: ViVo Wheels--- Update on page 3!   Sat Jul 14, 2012 4:44 am

As some of you may already know... I've been working on making wheels for quite some time now and i've finally gotten all my materials and a good amount of practice with the tools necessary. so with that being said I present to you ViVo Wheels!




yeah so these are the first style of wheels that i've really strived to work on. They're centralized single bearing longboard wheels and the first professional finger longboard wheels?????? Theyre made from polyurethane and machined by hand on a lathe. These WILL fit on Brt's! Nothing as far as ordering or reviews will be put out yet, but i just figured id drop you a friendly heads up! this thread will be updated occasionally, and as frequently as possible. thanks guys happy

They looks super good, although will they always be the same size if they are done by hand? Great job though happy

Yes and no, everything is measured using a micrometer before it comes off of the lathe with a tolerance of 1/2 thousand. So these wheels are all within half a thousandth of an inch of each other.
