Just like a bit of advice of you guys,Ive got a 10x30 bulldog DT deck and I want to put some 8.75 Jay Adams grind king trucks on it,I have 9/16 risers and would like to know what the best wheels would be offset etc with these trucks?.I dont mind too much overhang at the front but like to keep the rear wheels flush or very slight overhang.I was looking at 60-62 mm wheels.Any advice on the best wheels for this set up I would appreciate.

On my 10x30s, I usually go with 139s and full size (64mm) Dubcons.  Dubcons add about 1.5" to the 8" axles of the 139s, bringing track width to 9.5".  That brings the outside edge of the back wheels flush with the edge of the deck.

In your case, with 8.75" axles, I would go with Mini Dubs.  Mini Dubs are 62mm tall and are center set, so they only add about 1/2" to the track width of the trucks.  With Mini Dubs, you would have a track width of about 9.25", which, in my humble opinion, leaves you 1/4" short of being flush.  I doubt you'll notice any problem, though.

I run Dubs on my Q10 with GK Jay Adams - perfect fit for my taste.
I like the track width to be flush with the widest point of the deck.
If you set the deck on its side it would ideally be at a 90° angle.
