In general, a Mid-Profile truck will work well for most freestylers. High trucks are usually preferred for rail tricks, as it creates a more stable platform for them. Low trucks provide extra stability for flip tricks and may be preferred by some hybrid freestyle skaters.

Here are some general measurements:

Profile Axle Height
Low 48-53mm
Mid 53-56mm
High 56mm+
