|: Am thinking about getting some Vskates shipped over to UK for trying out, Does anyone know if you can put standard wheels on these bad boys?
Alas, you can't. It would be a definitive plus if you could. There would be so many wheels you could choose from!
: How have you found them for grinding?
I didn't try this myself, but I let Sven Schuhmacher try them out. He had no problem sliding with them. I wouldn't call it grinding since there is no metal to grind on their bottom. You rather can slide with them in two directions. Tilting sideways is also possible.
