As to the ghost pop: too many factors. Tail angles, wb, overall length, wheel size, truck height, truck effect on wb....too much. Most people can adapt. Me however, back on my 14Ē bs

I like taller wheels with Ace. Normally Iím on 52 mm ish. I ride 56 mm conical fulls without too much trouble, and no risers. There are lots of other factors tho, namely the board being wider than the trucks.

Depends on the truck size and deck size. 44s on an 8.5, I can do 54mm classics no risers but 55s on a 8.75" I'll need risers on 54mm classics. Wheel shape and width also comes into play.

I'm on 54mm classics, might be a little worn down but even new they were fine on 44s. I did try 56mm conical full too, but ended up setting them back on my indy 159s, but it was very manageable on my 44s too.

Im running an 8.25 FA at the moment with 55mm conical full Spitties and the wheelbite is negligible.
It actually tapers to 8.125ish at the back truck and still not an issue thanks to how deep the trucks carve.

I know from insta Deedz runs 56-58mm wheels and his trucks look pretty loose. Oski also runs pretty big wheels on 44s/8.125 but with riser pads, which I think is quite an interesting setup.

Im on 56mm conical no problem with loose trucks. Wheelbite has never been a issue for me as long as my wheels go up to the edge of my deck. Only time it has effected me was when I skated magic carpet setups as a kid.

What's the max wheel size for stock looseness no risers Ace 44s without going to wheelbite town? Would 54mm-s suffice?

Depends how heavy you land / lean.  A lightweight body could ride 60mm and not have issues, but a heavy body could ride less than 50mm and get constant wheelbite on every landing or every turn.

Once you were used to the trucks though, you could ride almost anything and it would be ok for most people, so each size or option is dependent on who it is or how they ride.
I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

You should be safe with 54mm wheels. As I get used to mine, I have been slowly upping the wheelsize, no risers. Currently on 53mm conical fulls with Ace 55, but I'm 100kg. I could probably get away with a 54mm classic shape.

On 44s, you should theoretically get less bite from the same wheel size. So you should be safe with 54mm of any shape if you're under 200lbs and not a ham foot.

I complain off and on about Ace wheelbite, but the fact is the only time I experience wheelbite, is when I'm turning too hard anyways, like a ridiculous turn radius that no other truck could even get to.  And obviously when you land off the corner too hard but that happens on any loose truck. It's becoming a non issue, and I haven't even started making my own wheel wells..yet.

Iíve been riding ace exclusively for a few months now. For me Iíve gotten the least amount of wheelbite ever with ace and I ride loose and I weight 200lbs. My go to right now is 55mm wheels on ace 44. I have a set of 55s I was gonna set up but Iíve been sticking with the 44e for now. Wheelbite has honestly not been an issue at all for me

I'm gonna get a bit nerdy here, but there isn't as much "tiered gear" in skateboarding, as there is in some other sports. Like certain gear that's designed for advanced/experts, and intermediates can't really benefit from. For instance the ski industry has a lot of tiered gear, that's important to get right or you'll have a really bad time.

Ace feel almost like an "advanced" truck. A beginner can still have fun on them, but you gotta have some foot control to really make them shine.

Thinking of getting some aces to bring in the WB on the 8.5 Polar's. Is it worth getting riptide bushings?

In my opinion the Ace Stock bushings are the best on the market. Never had any problems with them. If you like loose but very controllable trucks the stock bushings are the way to go. Also the bushings are very durable, unlike the Indy or Thunder stocks
feels like shitting backwards

Iím only a handful of sessions in on my aces. But after never having a truck that Iím like this is the one for me. I think I found it. Didnít adjust the bushings until a few hours in and I only adjusted one after and itís cause the back bushing started to squish out so I loosened it to get back in.  Iím roughly 225lb riding them looser than the Indyís and ventures I was riding before and feel far more stable and so far to my knowledge havenít got wheel bite yet. But only a few sessions in.

I can second that the ace bushings are great. Just finished riding that shape on 44s and it was amazing

Though I do enjoy RipTide bushings in other trucks I found no reason to use them in Aces. I really like the Ace bushings.

When I started using the 44ís I had pretty minimal and short lived bushing bulge. I just ignored it and it stopped happening fairly quickly. I do use the RipTide pivot cups though.

I am also really enjoying using the 44ís on this 8.375 / 14.5wb Polar deck.

been riding indy 149/159 for years and would like to try some Ace 44s. Never had a bad set of indys so I'm a bit scared to try anything new. Should I just go for it?  ;D

I'd like to say you won't regret it. I rode nothing but indy's until I was gifted a set of 55s and never looked back. Currently running a set of 44s on my regular setup, 66s on a curb setup and 00s on a little cruiser.

I skated the trucks pretty different, the 55s were on my one and only setup for over a year and I have the 66s on more of a niche setup since getting laid off due to covid and having way too much free time has led me to having multiple setups for the first time haha. That being said the only huge difference I'm getting out of the 66s is that they can fully get on top of a double sided curb, which I'm really digging and they fit 10" plus boards better.

Good to hear! Then I will try a pair of 44s since I ride 8.5 boards mostly. Maybe get 55s for summer and for a bigger board.

Hell yeah they feel great on 8.5! If you want them to fit a little more flush with the board, run 2 washers on the inside of each wheel

I know this has been discussed before, but whatsup with that dead pop sound ace gives some boards. I have 55s set up on a creature stump and it has that crisp pop sound and feel when you hit the tail on the ground. I also have 44s on a shop deck that sounds dull and dead. I know it's the trucks because I just switched that board from 149 FH and it was crisp and snappy as hell on those.

Could it be because Aces are lower than indys resulting in the tail hitting the ground differently?
