What Size Trucks Do I Need For My Board?

Need some help deciding what trucks to put on your board? We’re here to help! You will notice that there are some areas of overlap on the deck width side of things. There are area’s where more than one size of truck will fit. It really comes down to personal preference, and can also depend on what size wheels you ride. Don’t stress too much about it though. Use this chart as a guideline, and you’ll be shredding in no time!

Deck Width* Independent Krux Bullet
6.20 – 7.60 109 / 6.90 axle 110 / 6.90 axle or 120 / 7.20 axle
7.40 – 7.80 129 / 7.60 axle 7.6 130 / 7.60 axle
7.80 – 8.20 139 / 8.00 axle 8 140 / 8.00 axle
8.10 – 8.50 144 / 8.25 axle 8.25 140 / 8.00 axle or 150 / 8.50 axle
8.25 – 8.65 149 / 8.50 axle 8.5 150 / 8.50 axle
8.60 – 9.00 159 / 8.75 axle 8.5 150 / 8.50 axle
8.90 – 9.50 169 / 9.125 axle
9.50 – 10.50 215 / 10.00 axle

*Deck range recommendation varies depending on type and width of wheels

Do I Need Riser Pads?

When running certain combinations of trucks and wheels sometimes it becomes necessary to use riser pads to avoid ‘wheel bite’. Don’t know what ‘wheel bite’ is? Well consider yourself lucky. Wheel bite is what happens when you turn your board and your wheel touches the deck. If you do this hard enough the wheel will ‘bite’ and stop rolling. This often means that you go flying off your board. So if you’re running bigger wheels make sure to read through this chart. While it might look like homework it’s definitely more fun than hitting the pavement! Indy Thrasher skateboard truck TTG stage Xl

Truck Height** Wheel Range***
48.5 – 52 49 – 53
52 – 53.5 51 – 55
53.5 – 55 53 – 57
