Really want some Adidas matchcourts in all white or some black gum busenitz pro. Anyone know how they fit? Should I go true to size?

True to size man, I have had a bunch of them. Skate really good too.
Picked up some Herman G6 vulcs from the sale pile at the local again. Black suede vulc shoe, really is a no brainer for the price.

For me, every ride is noisy as fuck when it comes to squeaky trucks, in my earlier days I put effort into solving it before giving up and just accepting my nastiness. I have tried switching out brands, harder/softer bushings, over-oiling everything, but still I sound like a rusty shed door, especially when I compress or set my feet up for tricks.

I never seen these before and I feel like this is yet another lucky rabbits foot snake oil-type 'skate accessory,' Any thoughts?

did you try messing with pivot cups? that's where a lot of squeak comes from
 put a little wax on grease on the pivot cup, or replace them if they're misshaped

Definitely your pivot cups.

Just put a drop of speed cream in them - I use blade oil that came with my beard trimmer and it'll silence that noise for a couple weeks...

i'm afraid of dis-assembling my truck and doing a thorough job but just some oil around the base of dem badboys has made 90% difference.
The silence alone made me wanna go skate

No need to disassemble. Just a drop will work it's way in via some turning.

I would say, just buy one! There's an 80% chance it'll be a great deck 8)

I need to get some 101 F4 radials. I tried them in 53mm 99s, so I'm excited about 101a 54mm. The slide has to be orgasmic.

you're trying to decide between the worst adidas shoe and the best adidas shoe (currently).  buz are true to size.

Said it before and will say it again that 35th ave is the spot for accurate dimensions(including wheelbase):
http://www.35thave.com/shop/Skate/Decks/Northern-Co.htm
The 8.5's with the 15" wheelbase were from their run with Pennswood from two seasons ago.  I have looked exhaustively and haven't found any of those boards online.  Their most recent run(the Shiloh guest board, Jerky graphic, Botelho photo board etc) was with South Central and from the boards I've held look like pretty typical South Central shapes.  From my memory:
8.5" with a 14.5 wb and fairly well defined/pilly nose and tail
8.38" with a 14.375 wb and pilly nose/tail
I would look on 35th's site and even hit up Northern if you have questions about a particular board.  Regardless their boards are solid.

Thunder 148s.

I'm riding 147s right now and almost always stick to 8.25" boards, but the board I'm waiting to set up is an 8.0" and I'm not sure if 148s will be too wide to go down to an 8.0 when I want to and I don't really have intentions of going more than an 8.38 board in the near future so I'm unsure if I should stick with 147s which fit the width range I stick in or if I should get the "proper" sizing for 8.25" decks since I usually stick to that size. I don't think I've ever blamed my lack of skill on my trucks so am I better off sticking with 147s or will I be able to survive using 148s on an 8.0" deck every 5 or so boards?

hey i just got some 148s recently and i would say to get some. i rode 149s for a while and just wanted to try them out with my 8.25 and i have no complaints. yeah it was funny to look at my trucks and notice them being a bit smaller in width but i love them. they shouldn't be an issue with an 8 deck. but if u wanted to put 149s on an 8 then id say no

I really want a pair of Vans Slip On Pros. I'll probably just chill/cruise in them, but I've been rocking a really shitty pair of slip ons I've had for years and suddenly have the urge to upgrade.

Yeah I got mine on sale for about the same price and i loved em. Too expensive at retail price but they're definitely a great pick up at $75

Thinking about picking up a pair of the Vans Ultrarange Pro and was wondering if anyone has tried/has feedback on them?
