These bearing are super fast, but they break way, way faster than they should. My friend had a set that blew within two months. I suggest just buying the Bones Swiss.
Pros: smooth ride, great speed
Cons: non-durable

These shoes are pretty good, I mean they're Vans, so they wear out kind of quickly. The foxing always pull away from the sole and parts of the shoe for me, and that's exactly what happened for my brother with these. Personally, I'd recommend the Etnies RCT as a better shoe. They have similar feel but the foxing doesn't come off and the soles last longer.
Pros: looks great, good board feel, cool colors, stylish, runs true to size, comfortable, good grip, good cushioning
Cons: poor ankle support, sole loses grip, rips easy, soles wear out, laces break easily, does not break in quickly, non-durable

These socks are great, my friend has gotten tons of pairs and I've had some myself. They do wear out like normal socks, but that should be expected.
Pros: lightweight, good quality, breathable

Mob grip is amazing and this is even better cause it has Spitfire on it. I got so many compliments from mine. It lasts forever too.
Pros: high performance, looks great, durable, good grip, cool graphics, good quality

A total Vans Off The Wall style - and it says so right on the tongue. The Vans Sk8 Hi was originally intended to be a supportive option for hardcore skaters, but this sneaker had far too much style and found its way to the streets. The Sk8 Hi is another long-time Vans classic continuing to grow its legacy with new fans. Suede upper. Weather-resistant Scotchguard™ treatment helps repel water. Waffle grip, gum-rubber outsole. Eco-friendly, water-based inks and glues.

These are good shoes, if you're fine with lacing them up every time you want to go skate. The soles do wear quickly, but that's true for all Vans. They also, like all Vans, have a long break in period.
Pros: looks great, good board feel, cool colors, stylish, runs true to size, comfortable, good grip, good cushioning, good ankle support
Cons: sole loses grip, rips easy, soles wear out, laces break easily, does not break in quickly, non-durable

 Levi's 501 Jeans - Men's
Levi's 501 Jeans - Men's
The history of Levi’s can be traced back to the mid 1800’s. A lengthy history like that makes one thing obvious; Levi’s is doing something right. Of everything that Levi’s has brought to the table over the years, only one model can be referred to as “The Original”. The first model created by Levi’s was indeed the 501; and it still remains as cool and comfortable as ever. Features include a regular fit, five-pocket denim, and wider belt loops. Levi’s detailing on the button fly and back of the jean lets you rep their long, cherished history. 100% cotton. Imported. Size reflects waist/inseam measurements.

I like these jeans, they fit well and are durable, the only downside is, they're kind of stiff. You also have to buy a larger size so they shrink to fit right.
Pros: stylish, durable

 Nike SB Dunk High - Men's
Nike SB Dunk High - Men's
When rocking a pair of Nike Dunks, you know you’re reppin’ something special. The Dunks were first created in 1985, but the first skate-specific style wasn’t dropped until 2002. Either you slice it, these kicks have a long history of style and performance. Among its many great qualities, the Nike Dunk High Premium has two key features that make it the high quality skate shoe it is: a classic profile and a supportive fit. A combination of leather, suede, and nubuck in the upper provides a sharp, eye-catching look with great durability. This classic kick also has a sockliner for impact protection, an EVA midsole for cushioning and a herringbone pattern outsole for ground-gripping traction. Upper construction: leather/suede/nubuck. EVA midsole for cushioning. Herringbone pattern outsole.

These shoes aren't that comfortable, and don't look all that great either. Plus they're expensive, not on sale that is. I could only wear mine when hanging out.
Pros: durable, good grip, good ankle support
Cons: sole loses grip, runs wide, uncomfortable, soles wear out, rips easy, doesn't look good, poor grip, poor cushioning, laces break easily, not very stylish, does not break in quickly, poor board feel

Mob griptape has great grip, with the perfect amount of slide when necessary. I've used mob on every board, until my last one, I switched to Grizzly.
Pros: high performance, durable, good grip, cool graphics, good quality

Aircraft-grade kingpins work with a strong baseplate to deliver that quick turn response Thunder is known for. 145, Axle 7.65" works well with deck widths 7.4" - 7.9". 147, Axle 8" works well with deck widths 7.9" - 8.2". Set of two trucks.
 

Which size axle would better fit an 8 inch board, 7.88 inches or 8.13 inches?

If you want the trucks to fit perfectly on the board, get the 147 or 8.13's

what is the difference between mob and grizzly grips?

also i noticed that ccs doesn't carry grip gum any more, will u restock soon?
Mob and Grizzly are so similar, but I found that my Grizzly didn't quite tear my shoes up as quickly as my Mob did. But it's really personal preference, I'd just try both if I were you.
