I’m building an electric longboard. The front wheels are two of these 5 inch pneumatic wheels:
However, hub is 33mm wide and is basically as wide as the exposed axle on my truck, which means I can’t secure the nylock nut on the threads. I thought of two possible ways to solve this:
- Grind the truck hanger down to expose more axle so the hub can sit further in
- Drill a small hole in the side of the axle so that a smaller screw (say m4) can screw into it and hold the wheel in place
Has anyone had this problem, and which way is better to solve it?
