suelo tires
« on: October 13, 2012, 10:58:45 PM »
Hey guys I'm interested in using the suelo tires. What are your opinions of these tires? I do a lot of foot contact tricks and turbines. I've noticed that Viki Gomez uses these tires and seems to have no problems.
Any help will be appreciated.

He uses them because he is (was?) sponsored by suelo..

Anyway, I wouldn't chose them for scuffing tricks, the slick top is good for rolling.

probably Odyssey frequency G is a better tire for scuffing,

or Primo just came out with the new V-monster V2, that was always a great tire for scuffing but the thinnest size is 1.95"

Primo Comet is the best tyre I've used for both rolling and scuffing.


Do not be fooled by the fact it's a a slick design - immense grip with rubber on rubber.


In fact I'd be willing to bet the Suelo's scuff well with their semi-slick design.


Freq-G's are crap in comparison, in my experience.

I use Suelo's front and rear and love them

They are extremely grippy

Check out the Fit FAF-not marketed as a "flatland" tire, but rolls & scuffs great and is really light, if that matters.

this..also from experience suelos suck the o's on the side make turbines and carving difficult and sluggish

I've been on Suelo tires for quite awhile and love 'em. Light weight, grippy, long lasting, they roll smooth and no blowouts.

I'm currently using this tyre and hate it!
Grippy my ass!! The side of the tyre is sluggish and slippery.
Top is fast and grippy but not the side.
Best part of the tyre is how light it is. And it does look trick but its so slippery.
Also there's something strange about the shape.
Scuffing on the smooth section is quite nice actually but those circles just aren't working for me.
No Worries...

Just got mine through the post this morning and i have to say they are pretty good i havnt had any trouble with them being slippery but i do admit the smooth top will take a bit of getting used too,theyre quite fast for rolling but i think i will end up liking that.
