I’m in the process of research for my first esk8 board and I’ve been reading lots and lots of amazing info on here. I think I’ve got most of it in my head/spreadsheet. One question I do have is on the Skike pneumatic wheels, as I’ve got a Beercan boards Oat Soda deck already I think for ground clearance reasons that going for pneumatic wheels is going to be the best choice. Now I’ve seen others using these wheels and then bring me to my two questions.
Do these fit the caliber trucks without modification? If they need maching that’s not a problem, but I’d like to know before I order them.
Does anyone do a hub drive adapter for these wheels or will I have to get one machined?
These 5in Skike wheels were the ones I was going to go for as they are relatively low cost and available in the EU. I’ve seen several Beercan builds with these I believe.
