In order to choose the best skateboard trucks for your complete skateboard, you'll need to figure out what size truck will fit your deck. The width of your trucks corresponds directly to the width of your deck. Too narrow a truck will be unstable; while too wide a truck can result in shoe to wheel contact while pushing, among other problems.
Choosing the best skateboard trucks for your setup can be somewhat challenging as skate decks are measured in inches, while trucks are measured using a variety of units that vary by brand.
Some truck brands also measure the width of their truck from axle nut to axle nut, while others measure just the width of the hanger. In the end, what you want is a truck that, when mounted on your deck, positions its axle nuts within a quarter of an inch from the edge of the deck. This means that your axle nuts do not extend outward beyond the edges of your deck, and do not rest further than 1/4" inside the edge of your deck.
Some deck sizes can accommodate more than one size truck. Keep in mind that choosing a wider truck in this scenario will offer you more stability while a narrower truck will offer quicker turning.
