    Default how long does it take you to break in your trucks?

    so how long does it take you to break in your trucks from when you first get them, and do you think the brand of trucks plays a role in how long it takes to break them in?

    when you first by the trucks the bushings are really hard and they get softer over time and usually it takes about a day or soo for the bushings to get to there maximum sooftness

    Wait really one of my truck sets came with really soft bushings does that mean my trucks are either damaged or the bushings are not the originals

    no it just depends on the trucks some will come with hard and some come with soft i think he meant when you get trucks they feel stiff/hard because theyre not broken in

    Indys take a while

    Even with bones bushings to break the actual truck in, the pivot cup, grind in grooves, lube them then get them turning with ease, takes a few weeks

    I remember skating a set of Krux that felt broke in very quickly but I distinctly remember there being slight differences in them that made me wish they where Indys but anyway that's a whole different subject.

    I never really remember having issues breaking in trucks, Thunders break in pretty easy so I guess it doesn't really stick in my mind. Just don't bomb hills with new trucks, I learned that the hard way.
