The 8.5” x 2.25” Front Wheel is sold fully assembled and will need to be replaced when the tread wears out or the tire no longer holds air.
It is recommended to perform an alignment after the first front-wheel replacement by following the steps outlined in the Front Wheel Alignment Guide. This will ensure the longest tire life and best steering performance.
It is highly recommended to use Loctite 242 (or a similar removable threadlocker) and the recommended torque spec is 40 Nm (30 ft-lb).
All-wheel bolts come with a red Loctite patch on the threads that are rated for several reinstallations, but it is highly recommended to apply more Loctite as a secondary measure for keeping the bolts tight.
Before every ride check the front wheels by tilting the board to the side until one of the front wheels is off the ground, grab the wheel with one hand and shake side to side making sure each front wheel bolt is fully tightened.
