oh man i have skated for bout 5 years but everything sounds good. But i dont know about the products you listed sound good but i would not put the raiser pads on and would not go with the tensor trucks. i always skated krux trucks or orion. what size wheels you want? i like 54mm 1 in bolts are needed if ur going with riser pads. Skate on and always wear your helmet haha jk but its not a bad idea

if you could afford to buy them get the Grind King Titanium Trucks. About 40-50
bucks each, but worth it. They are super lite.

You must be kidding. Or ride bowls or something. For street skating the lighter the easier it is to flip your board around, and or ollie.

:eek: Lets see the last time I skated i had a Santa Cruz deck, Tracker Truck's and kryptonic wheel's,before that I had a Logan Earth Ski deck, Bennett Trucks and Sims wheels(or it could of been O.J. wheels...)My very first skate was this piece of ply wood with clay wheel's i used to do down hill skating, laying down with my chest on the board and my arms outstreched like superman untill I decided to try 'Bandini hill, up in Mission Hill's, for you that dont know it..
"BIG ASS HILL!!!! for those that do, ypu know I had to be CRAZY!! Well long story short ,
I'm hauling ass down this hill on my stomach when half way down i run into unfinished pavement and lots of gravel.
well clay wheel's and gravel dont mix and my skate board stops dead but my body keeps on going...
result's: the worst case of road rash i have ever had!!! 1 giant blister all over my chest, scabs all over my hand's and Knee's,elbow's and chin.
I messed my self up!!! :(

I can remember when we still had those metal wheels, and going over every crack on the sidewalk. Clay wheels were very good for leaving skidmarks in the street when you turned really quick.

Or when you run over a pebble and you went head over heels, It was great when they invented poly-urythane wheels!!!
