    Yes, 147's would also fit (with a little bit of axle showing)

    Yes. I would use 147 tho. More room to grind. Doesn't stick out much at all and the ability to size up boardsize later. Hell I would even use 147s on a 7.75.

    147 on a 7.75 is the same as having 149 on an 8.25. Works just fine.
