have I ordered the wrong trucks for my deck?

For those with over 40 inches of equipment

have I ordered the wrong trucks for my deck?

Postby irvine » Wed Aug 20, 2014 2:09 am

Ive ordered the Loaded Kanthaka and 180mm Paris V2's. After s bit of reading im concerned thd 180mm trucks will be too wide (deck is 8.625").
Any advicd would be greatly appreciated.

Probably too wide. For a 8.6 you would normally use 159s. Longboard wheels are wider than skateboard wheels so Paris 150 should be the natural size for your board.

Don't take my word for it though. Check what trucks online stores recommend.

They were listed as a recommendation for the board along with 150's and 169's.
I called and cancelled the trucks, just waiting to see when they get the 150mm V2's in stock, ivr got an old pair of Venture featherlights from about 20 years ago I can use for a week or so but ordering Orangatang fat free 65mm to finish the set up.
thanks for your advice man.

Ditches. Streets. Bowls. Hills. Carving and bombing. Sliding. Sounds like a very versatile setup.
