Hey!  I have a set of Tiger Trax 4 wheels.  The problem is standard size bearings are too small. Anyone here know what size bearings these monsters use and where to get some.

Thanks!

Look same size to me and I have set on my vintage
Makaha 27" Originator that I ride...
Just standard issue skateboard wheel bearings...
Would mean different size axle rod as well right?
I use OG vintage Lazers with my Tiger Trak IV wheels....

Assuming this is what you are talking about. Maybe I am confused? [confused]

At least I tried.... :----)

Looking back at that link to ebay and the tiger trax 4s that were sold.  Towards the bottom, the seller says the tiger trax 4s take a bigger bearing.  So the standard bearing is 608, what would be next?

Thanks!

Been a long search, but I found bearings for the Tiger Trax 4s.  They are a 638.  That is one, or should say eight big bearings!

I just sent a wheel to this bearing company in AZ so they could match it up.  Just had to specify the center hole be 8mm.  Hardest part was finding a place.
