    Default Wheel size for low trucks.

    I'm picking up a set of Tensor lo's. Is there a guide anywhere that tells you what mm wheel to purchase with different sizes of trucks (i.e lo, mid, high).

    Also what do you suggest as a good all around wheel for street and skate park type activities for a set of lo trucks?

    All the best to you,

    Justin

    Default 51's

    Cool guys thanks for the great info. I picked up a set of 51's to start out and I'm lovin' it. When I wear them down I'll get a set of 52mm's.

    Personally I prefer mid trucks (or Thunder hi's) but if you really want some low's I'd actually recommend Krux Downlows.

    That being said, Ventures aren't bad either.
