Truck companies name their manufacturer sizes a little differently per brand. This can get confusing. At Active 8 Sports we have organized trucks based on their axle width and its suggested deck size to help in your decision

When choosing a truck there are a few things to consider in relation to the deck and wheels you want to use them with. Generally speaking, you want to keep your truck axel width within a ¼” deviation from your deck width. If you choose too wide, then your wheels will hang out over your deck and depending on by how much, may interfering with your tricks. If you choose too narrow, you could end up with a pretty unstable set up.
