Union Wheel Co
Union Wheels was a brand from the 1990s that was owned by Rich Metiver. Union team riders included Matt Beach, Steve Olson, Tom Boyle, Ronnie Bertino, Adil Dyani, Tom Krauser, Ryan Kenreich, Brian Young, Paul Sharpe and Eric Koston amongst others. Union caused a bit of a stir when Mark Oblow left Race Wheels to start Color Skateboards with Metiver's backing and tried forcing Color riders to leave their current wheel sponsors for Union as a package deal. Of course this didn't sit well with Fausto Vitello who was the distributor for Race Wheels and resulted in all Color riders receiving a ban from Thrasher Magazine.
