Don't Compromise on your Skateboard Bearings

Skate bearings can be used for most applications within the industry, skateboards, scooters, quads, longboards and inlines all use the same sized bearings, some bearings are measured on an ABEC scale ranging from 1 to 11 (in odd numbers) with 11 being the highest precision, however this does not account for the grade of material used which is also very important to the speed of a bearing. 2 bearings are used per wheel with a spacer in the middle. As usual all the best brands can be found at SkateHut.

  • How to get Bearings out of Skateboard Wheels?

    Removing Bearings from your Skateboard Wheels is a fairly simple process that can be done with a Skate Tool or wrench. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to remove Bearings from Skateboard Wheels:

    Materials needed:

    • Skate Tool or wrench
    • Clean rag or paper towel


    1. Remove the Skateboard Wheel from the truck axle using a Skate Tool or wrench.
    2. Place the wheel on a clean rag or paper towel with the bearing side facing down.
    3. Use the axle of the Skate Tool or wrench to push down on the centre of the Bearing until it pops out of the wheel.
    4. Flip the wheel over and repeat on the other side to remove the second Bearing.
    5. Clean the Bearings using a Bearing cleaner solvent or replace them if necessary.
    6. If cleaning the Bearings, dry them thoroughly with a clean rag or paper towel before reinserting them into the Skateboard Wheel.

    Repeat the process for each wheel until all bearings have been removed. Once the Bearings have been cleaned or replaced, reinsert them into the wheels and reattach the wheels to the Skateboard Truck axles.

  • Are All Skateboard Bearings the Same Size?

    No, not all Skateboard Bearings are the same size. While most Skateboard Bearings have a standard size of 8mm (diameter of the hole that fits onto the axle), there are some variations in size and shape, depending on the manufacturer and type of Bearings.

    In addition to the 8mm diameter, Skateboard Bearings also have a standard width of 22mm and are typically classified as "608" Bearings. However, there are some Bearings with narrower or wider widths that are specifically designed for certain types of Skateboards, such as Longboards or Cruisers.

    It's important to check the size and specifications of the Bearings before purchasing or replacing them, to ensure they are compatible with your Skateboard and its wheels.
