Truck Sizing Guide

What width of truck is right form my skateboard? Good question. In general, your going to want to match the width of your deck to the axle width of your truck. If your board is 8.25" wide...your going to want a truck with an axle width of 8.25" or less. Check out the diagram and chart below to match your board to the right sized truck. 

Use the diagram above for a visual refererce for sizing your trucks. Notice that the axel that is slightly narrower than the deck is OK, the axle that is the same width is GREAT, and the axle that is wider is BAD - try not to do this. 

Width Conversions

Some truck brands measure their trucks by axel length, some by hanger length. To add complexity brands vary in their use of Metric (mm) and standard (in) measurement systems. We've broken down each brand to give you an accurate conversion for matching the right truck to the right board.
