I read Hoosier tires raves like yours for months. It made me hate my Vega tire. So, I bought a Hoosier 5.5, installed it, with extraordinary difficulty - I destroyed my Vega during the removal. I then promptly hated the Hoosier. Search the forums, you'll find my review.
The Hoosier tire is darty, quick, and turned my easy-cruising Onewheel into a zippy, squirrelly handful. I couldn't look at my iPhone while riding anymore, couldn't ride the opposite direction anymore, and even high-sided a couple times. And my ankles hurt like !@#$ trying to keep it straight. I consider myself an expert rider - almost 600 miles under my belt, and hated the thought of a new learning curve. Worst of all - NO change in mileage, even at an ankle-breaking 35psi.
After I posted my negative Hoosier review, others chimed in, saying they didn’t like the Hoosier either for the same reasons. These were the first negative Hoosier reviews I ever saw. I’m just posting this for others, so they don’t feel like their board is sub-standard unless they change out the tire - like I did.
Each tire suits different riding styles differently. For tricks, quick turns, and off-road traction, the Hoosier is awesome! If that was my riding style, I’d be a happy owner. But I prefer long-distance cruising, and off-roading on smooth single-tracks while looking at the clouds, checking my stocks, and making sure my golden retriever is still behind me.
I want riders to install a Hoosier for the right reasons, and understand that their board's handling will change dramatically - and depending on your riding style, you'll either love it or hate it.
P.S. @readysetawesome Is your Vega for sale? ;)
