The next step is putting your bearings into
your wheels. Here I chose active bearings. These are Abeck 5 bearings. This is what I
use. Pretty good price. There’s 8 bearing in each bearing set, 2 for each wheel. Get
your bearings out. Find your wheels, select wheels. Some bearings have two sides. One
will have like an open side; one has like a side, a shinier side to show out. These
ones are both the same so it doesn’t matte what faces down. Here at active we have a
bearing press so it makes it pretty for us. Put one bearing down. Put the wheel on top.
Put your second bearing on top of the wheel. Fold it down, line it up and pull. And then
your bearing’s in the wheel. This is the pretty standard way for skate shops to put in wheels
but if you don’t have a bearing press and you’re at home you can always use the axle
of your truck. This is if you don’t have a bearing press. This is what I use at my house.
So you got your bearing. You got your wheel and your second bearing, and you kind of just
push it on like this. And that’s how you do it there.
