Tearing up the Abec 11 Stingers

Post by RL » Tue Nov 18, 2003 5:57 am

I've torn the outer edge off my 81a Stingers. This is the second time it's happened to me with these wheels. They are very new wheels to. Is it me?
Has this happened to others w/ Stingers?
Any advice?

You know, this is my 2nd set of stingers and the 2nd time the outsides have torn off right at the core.
Ive mailed abec 11 about this w/ zero response either here or from my direct e-mail. What the hell?
Has this happened to others with this wheel?
I a small guy, I dont get it. Why me and both sets?
Im thinking maybe I better order some avalons.
Damn I wish they came in Green.

Could be that they are too soft. Happens all the time with 80A wheels.
