This has probably been asked before, but I got some brand new oaks, riding them on BRT's and they seem to be rolling all wonk. Like the bearing isnt straight on the inside. One part of the wheel sits closer to the locknut than the other, and if you look at the riding surface of them as theyre turning, it looks like it is doing the wave. They are obviously sitting on the trucks a bit slanted. I've never had oaks before so I cant say whether or not it is really affecting how they feel. But is this normal?

It seems like 1 out of 5 oaks wheels sets have these issues. Maybe just ride them till they even themselves out.

I've had the same issue and Ricardo sent me a replacement set (different color but still very very nice of him). Try politely asking him and send some photos as well. I've had exactly 5 sets so Twest is right lol.

Ricardo is a very cool guy. Oaks for life!

Same thing has happened to me, I still have not recieved my replacement set and I bought oaks 4 months ago, I have persistently tried to contact Ricardo but it's still a very long process.
