I took a set of 83mm/77a Centrax wheels and trimmed about 3/8" (10mm) off each side (keeping them centered) and reducing the width to about 59mm. Wheels seem to roll much easier, especially pumping up hills. Pile of trimmed 'thane weighed a full 8oz. If interested in having your skateboard wheels trimmed, that service is available at a cost of US$5.00/wheel for a two sided cut or US$3.00/wheel for a one sided cut. Currently offering straight 90* cuts that leave a sharp 90* lip or can sand a small 45* bevel (2-3mm wide) on either edge (inside, outside or both) as desired. Add $0.75/bevel/wheel for the beveling if beveling the same edge/lip that is being trimmed. For bevels added to an untrimmed wheel or lip or for bevels wider than 3mm up to 6mm wide, cost is $2.00/bevel/wheel. The beveled edge can help reduce chunking on the edge. For example, 4 wheels w/ 2 cuts and 2 beveled edges would run US$26, or 4 wheels with 2 beveled edges (no trimming) would run US$16. Return postage in the US typically runs $15, US$47 to Canada/Mexico and US$68 to other countries. Or you can include a pre-paid return shipping label in the box that we can use to send the wheels back to you. PM 4Crawler or e-mail (r.c.brown@ieee.org) for details. Also, for folks buying new wheels, you can order them and ship them to us and we'll re-ship them to you when trimmed/beveled to save on at least one shipment.   (53/70)
