The bearing size is perfect and the price is good at $18 a complete wheel/tyre/tube/bearing...pity!!
I am considering making some axle extension pieces maybe..which could also incorporate the motor mount..
I have also made some 150mm wheels that fit the skike tyre (150mm)- but again the cost for production is ludicrous..
Skike kids 125mm
my 5" wheels -and these will fit a standard skate truck. but im going to fit them to a MBS truck -i think.. to give the width and clearance on a deck.
Can the bearing seat in the skike wheel be milled narrower? How much too wide are they to fit a caliber axle?
