Truck Sizing Guide
Trucks come in all different sizes, so we've written this guide to help you make the right choice.
Trucks are measured either by axle width or hanger width. These widths will determine how far apart your wheels are. Generally, the axle width should be between a ¼ inch smaller up to the same width as your deck. So for an 8" deck, you'd look for 7.75"-8" trucks. The wider the trucks are, the more stability you have on the board.
The height of the trucks is also known as the truck profile. This is the distance between the hanger and the bottom of the deck. The height comes in low, mid, and high. The height determines what size wheels you have on your deck. Mid height is most common for street or park skating, suitable for 53-56mm wheels. Low profile gives some extra stability for flip tricks and other moves, suitable for 50-53mm wheels. High profile is good for 56mm+ large wheels, suited to carving, cruiser and longboard decks.
