From Sunset Skateboards out of California comes the Flare LED Skateboard Wheels with Light Emitting Diodes or LED’s inside the urethane wheels. While not a completely new concept to the market, which is clearly represented in the promo video with the terrible 80’s montage music and filming style and at $39.95 they are not that bad of a deal.

They are still kind of cool and I am sure there are going to be some cool applications for them such as long exposure photographysafety while bombing hills at night or while out for a late night cruise with your gang.  But if you are more like me and want just some good Ol’ fashion skate wheels and a new deck then in the words of Ron Burgundy- “Stay classy San Diego”.
