It's interesting to me that you used Tracker 184's on the Q10.  On the advice of others here I picked up the Tracker 161's for this board, but from your picture it does not look like the wheels extend beyond the edge of the deck.  I'm currently gathering various parts for mine so I'm anxious to see how it looks by comparison.

If I was using Dubcons, for example, I would definitely get some wheel overhang. But these wheels hardly extend beyond the axle, so it works.

Hey Skywalker.  If you scroll back through you might see some setups with wheel choices that would work w/your 161's.   Also scroll through setups threads for the BDS Wheel/Truck combinations thread.  It's probably around top of the page 8 or so.  That'll help you make your wheel choice

Thanks for the feedback from both of you.  I'll be getting Rainskates Yellowjackets, likely in the single-con cut.  Any idea if the 161's that I have will be fine or if I should invest in different Trackers?

Glad it worked. REALLY looks sweet. I'm sure I found the link from someone else on here? Cool....

Most "new-school" wheels don't extend beyond the axle nut (once mounted).  

The Q10 is about 10.5" wide.  Take the truck's axle length (10" on the Indy 215's, 9 3/4" on the Tracker 184's) and the wheel type into consideration.  

The Rainskates Yellow Jackets look like they would be flush with the axle nut...


I'd agree with CCKEN.

Thanks for the input, and it makes a lot of sense.  It looks like I may have to eBay the 161's and pick up some 184 Trackers instead.  That's okay, too cold to skate now so I have time in putting this all together.  This board is going to look and ride sweet when done so it'll be worth it all.  Thanks again.

Yeah, I think I'll keep the Trackers.  I'm also building decks for my two kids, so I may hang onto the 161's for use on one of them.

Indy 169's or the 215's.
I thought 169's would be tippy on my Outlaw(albeit modified to 10.12" with shorter wheelbase) but they work great with
the YellowJackets on tranny.
Ace 66's turn well too, if you can find them.
Use the Trackers for a cruiser.
