Readers Respond: What Are the Best Skateboard Trucks?

Responses: 62


There are several brands of skateboard trucks to pick from, and many claim to be the best. I have my Top 10 Skateboard Trucks list, and there's the Worst Skateboard Trucks list, but I want you to be able to share which skateboard trucks YOU think are the best! Share your opinion here - make sure to say which skate trucks you think are the best, and explain what makes those skate trucks so good.

indepents fuck you thats why. like shit its perfect its the best it make the panties wet and the dickk hard. if not fakasap
—Guest fukyoudasy


I have tried destructo, personally I think they suck, can't ride straight and they don't feel like they are there which I hate, Indy's ride straight and you can get great pop from them because they don't drag your board down, also really durable. If I were you I would stay away from destructo.

Best Trucks

Tensors/ Independents are the best trucks. Tensor are VERY light, but they are kinda loose just need to tighten them. Indy's are amazing they have the smoothest grinds ever, but are heavier than Tensors even the Indy hollows are still heavier than tensors.

indy's all the way

no truck turns like indy's do. I know people say that they are heavy, and i'll admit, they are certainly not light, but they grind so smooth, and they turn so great, even with the bushings they come with.


my two are 1 venture 2 thunder with bones dubble action bushings
