    ok, 7.5 width = fattest part of the board (nose) when you're measuring side to side. Bearings are the part in the wheel that lets them spin, there on the inside of the wheel. YOU NEED BEARINGS. When you get the trucks, put the big nut (otherwise known as the "kingpin") facing inwards, or toward the middle. If you don't put them in the middle you will try to turn and basically die. When measuring a board, measure what looks like the fattest part of the board from side to side. Which should be from about 7 to 8 inches. When measuring length measure from the nose to the tail. Hope this helps!
