Recently got back into BMX and have got a new (SH) WTP. Always had a bit off a thing for Skyway Tuffs, first bike I rode was my brothers Tuff Burner. Interesting that most bikes are now spoked. What is the consensus on Tuffs...is it like retro classic vintage chic, or are they still a valid wheel option. Thinking about rocking a set of black ones on my Envy...is that bike blasphemy?

From what I've read they flex a lot, but they still seem to be a valid wheel option. Planet BMX has a wicked selection. I think they're f*cking rad.

Yep, they are the bomb. :Cool :
