Keep in mind, too, that Mini Dubs are 62mm tall and regular Dubcons are 64mm tall.  So, you might be ok with just 1/2" of riser, depending on how loose you run your trucks.  But, of course, as you question assumes, if the setup is not wide enough for the wheels to hit the deepest part of the wheel wells, then you pretty much lose that 2mm advantage.  This board is pretty flat, so you definitely have to be mindful of wheel bite, as it appears you are.

I agree with 70's 3/4" is one hell of a lot of riser, I don't think you'll need more than 1/2".

Wedge in the front will help with wheel clearance and will turn better as an added bonus.

Are you sure about the "8" ply option on this deck?

I definitely remember it being an option on the 44" long pigs

By the way, that graining on the one on the right is awesome

Wood grain on the grey is nuts. Nice deck to have.
