The truck and deck size chart above is a general guideline based off common sizes found here at Tactics. Everyone skates different and prefers different setups based on their style and caliber of skating. The more you progress, the more you will want to customize your setup to meet your own skating needs.

You want to match your skate truck width as close as you can to your deck width, usually within a .25" range for standard decks. Having too narrow of a truck may cause some instability issues and a teeter-totter effect, and having too wide of a truck will reduce your turning performance. Generally speaking, you don't want the wheels to be visible when looking at the top side of your board.
