Need help with truck fitment
« on: September 21, 2018, 04:52:18 AM »
*first board* Ok so i picked up my friend's used deck, its a 7.75. I've realized that the 7.75 might be a bit too small for my size 12 feet. Im looking to get an 8.125. The problem is that i already ordered my trucks for the 7.75 board. I ordered "Independent Stage 11 Standard Black Out TC Trucks (7.75)". Could i use these trucks on an 8.125 board without any issues? Would it change the feel of the board noticeably?

When i was younger, i was rocking low trucks, and they were somewhat hard to find in Europe, and i rode a lot of 8.125 decks with 129 Indy trucks cause the other sizes were hard to get.

From my experience, you'll face a lot of nasty wheelbites and weird turning, especially if you ride lose trucks.
