    Default Wheelbite problem with thunders 147

    Hi,
    A while ago i bought some thunders 147 and 53mm wheels and recently i've been having a lot of wheelbite problems since the trucks are kinda low, are those wheels too big for those trucks or im just unlucky when landing? i ride semi tight trucks. Should i reduce my wheel size or try some 1/8 pads?
    Greetings.

    53 mm isn't a big wheel. I'd say try some pads I guess. Surprised you're having wheelbite with that setup in the first place.

    wheel bite means you turn farther than your trucks are made for, are you street skater or vert?? it's much harder to get the same results from street but possible.
