    I've always been a Thunder guy. They look cleaner and more simple.

    Indys for me because I like bigger wheels. The thunder high is still much lower than standard indy. That and the turning and look. Thunders are sick too. I feel like it's more oriented towards more technical street stuff, not that indys don't do that amazingly as well

    I've had both. They couldn't be more different.

    I'm on Theeves now.

    I like both for different things. Right now I have Thunders on my board and they feel good.

    I have both and I definitely prefer Indy trucks but Thunder's good too in its own way. I have to ride Thunder trucks a bit tighter than Indy's and I prefer riding loose so..

    I gotta add one thing, I actually got my new thunders today, and they are the lights, which have some bushings that are different from the ones that are in regular thunders. They feel nice and loose from the start. So yeah if you are gonna get thunders I would get the lights or at least a model with the white bushings

    I've noticed a lot of people riding theeves lately. They kind of remind me of aces somehow

    With Indy, I couldn't recover quickly enough after landing tricks without tic-tacking because I'm sketchy. On Thunders when I loosened them up, I started getting wheel bites.

    So Xen said to try Theeves, and I've enjoyed the middle ground thus far in terms of turning. Stores had a hard time keeping them in stock earlier this year when I was shopping around, but I think that was as much a result of low supply as it was the level of demand.

    He'll probably tell you Aces turn similarly to Indys.

    I've tried Indy, Thunder, Theeve and Krux since I started back up. All with stock bushings, and then all with bones medium bushings. My favorite truck is now the Krux K4 with their stock bushings. They're cheap, light, turn really good and grind smooth as hell.

    I have both Thunders and Indy's on two different set ups. Both are great just prefer Thunder for no real reason other than its deluxe

    I bought a pair of 147 hermans on my first legit setup. Had 3 pairs of standard indy 139s since then and now i'm back on thunder 149 hollows. I have to say thunders are alot more responsive but i don't trust them as much in a bowl as i do indys.

    i have both and love them also for different reasons, but i'm leaning more to indy due to their versatility. Weight wise has never been a problem for me

    Get Thunder if you want a lighter truck that has a sporty turn. Get Indy's if you want a stronger truck with a smoother turn

    NECRO! (slightly) Thunder cuz they're lower n lighter and they don't feel as clumsy turn sharper come in all sorts of crazy graphics and colors have a sick team been riding them since I was 10 so that makes 8 years on thunder, stock bushings are nice, grind more buttery than indy's and I've never broken a pair. Sorry about that. Indy's are nice but they're so high. When I'm on indy's it feels like the height of my board is taller than the width of my board, (which is a illusion of course) and they have too much play. But I prefer the solid feel of indy over thunder, I like the way they turn, and they make me feel more confident on my board. Been using them about 2 years. At the moment I'm going totally nuts trying to decide which I like better, sometimes switching back and forth between Independent and Thunder 3 times a day. But I found myself leaning towards Thunder, especially now that the 149 II's came out, which I honestly have to say are the best trucks I've ever skated.

    Oh and I've also come to this musical conclusion:
    Independent Trucks: Metal
    Thunder Trucks: Punk
