I am beginning to think 149 is too small for 8.5. I think you need 169 for a 9 inch and no smaller than 159 for 8.75. Spacers only push the wheels out .125 inches per wheel, so really 149 with inside spacers is ideal for an 8.25 deck. Up to you but I have been playing around of late and lurking hard in trucks thread. You could get ace 55 also.

I have 149s on an 8.75 and 60mm wheels and it's perfect. When i had 169s i only liked them on at least a 9 inch

Word, that is pretty much what I was envisioning for the next step, 8.75" with big conical fulls (58mm though). Are you running extra washers or nah?

No extra washers just one per wheel, everything is flush with the deck.

I think he's saying he's cheap...

Edit: That's exactly what he's saying

Blank decks for life. Yes, I'm a cheap mofo.

Lol, yeah, I am cheap. For the price of a branded deck, I can get 2 blank decks and grip tape.
I'd rather do that and save my money for good trucks, wheels and bearings.

I really would like to find more big & short boards to skate. Been skating a lot of the Polar Dane shape and also had one Prime Woods Dune board. Which companies make boards over 9" wide and under 32" long?
Theories has one shape called The Delivery Board that looks pretty good, anyone skated it?

Currently riding:

Dane1 Polar 9,72"
Ace 55's with Bones Mediums
Krooked Risers
56mm Spitfire Classics with Bronson bearings

Check out the Deckcrafters Killdozer/Sharkdozer (same shape/different graphic: 11x 30 7/8, 16.75wb), Blue Haven Pool Cue Snub (10x30, 15.5 and 16.25wb), Double Double (9.25x31.75, 14wb).

Also the Dogtown Bigfoot and Bigfoot II.

edit: snub is 10x30, not 33

3 over 9 set-ups

A) Cruiser
     Earthwing Thruster 9.5x36
     Bear Trucks
     Powell ATFs

Best feeling concave on a cruiser/downhill I’ve ever felt. Perfect pockets. Only problem is that it was really warped, I had to screw 2x4s and weight it for a couple weeks to get rid of it. But it was really cheap.

B) pool/tranny
     Powell Flight 9.26x32
     Indy 169 stage 10
     Bones Laseks SPF

Indestructible, and fun on street too.

C) old-school
     Black Label Auby Bullnose 10x31
     Indy 169 stage 9 x bones mediums
     60mm Rat Bones 85a
      Rib bones

Bonelesses have come back, I’m using this for street and feeling like a kid again
