Hello
I want ro buy new trucks you my fingerboard, right now i have close up trucks,my budget is 15$ - 25$, not over 25$
I saw few reccomendations for both trucks, but i dont know what is more reccomended the the other.
For you, wich one is better, or maybe there is an other company which is better then both of them

TDLBs are the best cheap option.

Threads with these same kinds of questions pop up all the time. Please make an effort and do some research on the forums and you will find lots of info on trucks, what is what and what not..

Depending on where you are located you might find them in local toy stores and sometimes not. There are always a few on ebay and amazon etc. What you decide to buy is totally up to you..

Chemistry trucks are shaped/painted Tech Deck longboard trucks, so you're paying a little more for the shaping/painting.
TDLB trucks will cost a little less online, but then again, you have to be careful to get the right ones.
So both are very similiar... it just comes down to weather you're wanting them shaped/painted and if you're willing to take the chance on possibly buying a wrong set online.

Your deck needs to have a kingpin hole if you're going to use TDLB trucks I believe. At least the one set I have is like that

Yeah, there are the ones that have the white bushings and pivot cups and brt like baseplate and the ones that dont. They look the same, but arent. The "indy" version also have the independent logo on the front of the baseplates and is the ones in my picture below. I have posted this info numerous times on here before every time this confusion pops up..



The ones that come with the teckdeck longboard that Couch982 linked to are these exact ones.. study

The regular teckdeck longboard trucks are also ok with use of pivotcup material (as long as its not the inverted kingpin ones). But these with the baseplate in my picture is the most desired ones to get, and in my opinion they are indeed a little bit better than the regular teckdeck baseplate ones..

Youre welcome!

Oh, and make sure to get a nice set of Witchcraft bushings!! afro

who are you talking about?

Just checked out the jem trucks. They actually look legit. Don't know if they just reshaped and changed the kingpin or if they are actually made buy the dude but regardless they look sick http://instagram.com/p/xaYKLxM2yN/?modal=true

Theyre just modefied chinas looking all weird and overpriced. Totally not worth it compared to simply getting a set of TDLB "indy" trucks with a set of WCs. Feel free to disagree..

i'm free to disagree.
those are 17 euros, which is a good price considering the shaping, polishing and tuning of the trucks (judging from picture tho)

For sure the WCs bushings are awesome on mine.

I prefer to shape mine myself.


Even though the Jems look amassing.... I don think they are 32mm. they have spacers to make them 32mm. imo that will make the axles wobble loose faster. and the king pin is awesome but not needed really.

I think you would be better off with TDLBs.... Those look like 29mm with extended axels.... they do look nice....
