My wheels.....
Yes, thats what it looks like but one had an even dimple inside like it might be an air pocket.

It was just one ride. I think since these wheels are old they might have hardened or dried out? So do Rainskates have a lot of grip too cause they are really hard? I dont like the feeling of ice. They look wide too. I am liking the handling of a much narrower wheel just cause I'm small and the bowls I ride are also fairly tight.

: From nuts heads going outside the ramp surface, I got too some wheel bites on my Powell BB PF (not on the 95a: just small cuts, but no pieces off). Luckily, it's on the wheel edge, so it's not a problem, wheels still roll smoothly (unlike flat spoting ;-( ....). From concretedisciples forum, I heard it's a known issue with very hard wheels such as the PF.
: Tried again the Rainskates yesterday on small ramp, and I'm more and more impressed, pumping is much more efficient. I must find bearings+spacers for the Cortech ;-)
