In July 2007 Theeve set out to design the strongest, lightest and best skating truck to date. The progression of skateboarding into bigger and more technical tricks has seen skateboarders come to demand more from trucks than ever before.
The TIAX Truck was the first 6/4 Titanium Axle truck to market back in 2009. The new V3 is more durable than before using all the best elements out there we were able to generate the best truck incorporating the iconic Hardcore Bushings and Theeve True Turn Geometry.
The Tiax 5.25" Features:
- Axle width: 8.0"
- Hanger width: 5.25"
- Non slip 6/4 Titanium axles
- Titanium alloy blend cast hangers and baseplates
- Mid profile with True Turn geometry
- Hardcore bushings
- Grade 8 steel kingpins
- Cro-molly non slip axles
How to Buy Skateboard Trucks
What size skateboard trucks do you need?
Skateboard trucks are the metal T-shaped pieces that mount onto the underside of the skateboard deck. When selecting skateboard trucks, the width of your truck axle should closely match the width of your skateboard deck. The truck size can be measured by the width of the hanger or the width of the axle. Every skateboard requires two trucks.
There are several parts that make up the skateboard trucks. The axle is the pin that runs through the trucks to which the wheels will attach. The hanger, usually made of metal, is the largest part of the skateboard truck that is somewhat triangular in shape. The axle runs through the hanger. The kingpin is the large bolt that holds these parts together and fits inside the skateboard bushings.
When purchasing, you will receive the two trucks necessary to assemble your skateboard. Skateboard trucks come in various sizes and colors, and Warehouse Skateboards carries a huge selection of brands to fit your personal preference.6"-7.25" truck axle - 6.5" to 7.25" skateboard decks
7.5" truck axle - 7.25 to 7.5" skateboard decks
7.75" truck axle - 7.5” to 8" skateboard decks
8.0" truck axle - 8” to 8.5" skateboard decks
8.5" truck axle - 8.5” to 9" skateboard decks

What truck profile height do I need?
Truck profile is the distance between the bottom of the skate deck and the hanger. In general, a mid-sized truck works well for most skateboarders, but high or low trucks may be preferred for different styles of skating.

Good all-around profile for street or park (53-56mm wheel size recommended)
