Skateboard bolts - choosing the right size
Skateboard bolts or screws are used for attaching the trucks to your skateboard and they come in different sizes, colours and prices. The standard bolt length is ⅞-1’’ for regular skateboard setups. Make sure not to use bolts that are too long to avoid any snags when you grind. If you want to use riser pads to gain extra truck height, you should remember to increase the bolt length with the corresponding riser pad thickness. A high setup with longer skateboard bolts is rarely used since a high setup can easily result in losing some control over the board. This makes it harder to keep your balance when trying to land flips or jumps.
If you just bought a new set of wheels and are experiencing wheelbite you might want to consider raising your setup, and for this, you will need longer skateboard bolts and a riser pad,
