Bones Wheels are universally regarded as one of the most technically progressive skateboard wheel manufacturers on the planet, and rightly so.
“With a number of specifically created urethane formulas, each designed for use on specific types of terrain, Bones Wheels offer unparalleled choice and performance across their entire range.”
Before we go any further, it is worth briefly explaining the durometer reading used on these particular Bones Tony Hawk T-Bones 58mm wheels to avoid confusion.
The 84b durometer reading relates to the hardness of the wheel because this particular wheel is formulated so as to be beyond the limits of the Shore Durometer A Scale (which only goes up to 100a with any reliability). Instead, the hardness of these particular wheels (and various other models offered by Bones) is measured using the Shore Durometer B Scale to insure precision.

Needless to say, this commitment to absolute precision and transparency is reflected in all of Bones Wheels products making them the most highly regarded and consistently performing skateboard wheels available today.
The Bones Wheels Tony Hawk ‘T-Bones’ seen here are a perfect example with a wheel at 58mm in diameter coming in at 84b on the durometer (roughly equivalent to a 104a reading on the more commonly used Durometer A Scale).
With a wheel of this size you’d be advised to pick a high profile truck and at 33mm in width you’re probably going to be looking at a board around the 8.25” to 8.5” width range.
The Tony Hawk T-Bone wheel comes with Bones Wheels patented ‘SPF’ or ‘Skatepark Formula’ formulated to resist flatspotting on slick surfaces whilst retaining a higher rebound for quicker response and total control at high speed.
Put simply, the SPF formula is specifically engineered to deal with skatepark skating and to offer maximum control along with perfect slide every time.
The Tony Hawk T-Bone model also comes in Bones Wheels P5 shape offering reduced weight, less side drag, and optimum lock in on grinds.
This is the premier wheel on the market for skatepark skating and the brand have an unblemished reputation based on performance and reliability.
