The raw 4.25 FILM truck has been a house favourite for freestyle setups since they were first released, but FILM have now given us a couple of new colour options in this freestyle-friendly size, suitable for using on freestyle decks between 7.25″ and 7.4″ wide.

This is the “Petrol” truck with an iridescent baseplate – lovely and shiny for all of the freestyling magpies out there.

We recommend coupling these with a deck such as the Moonshine Denham Hill model and the freestyle wheels of your choice.

Note that the baseplate says it’s a 5.0″ truck – that’s only because they put this together as a special order for us, and they didn’t have any printed up that said 4.25″ on them!

We recommend a bushing upgrade:

Ace AF1 Hard Bushing Kit

If you're looking for more stability in your trucks - whether that's for more predictable flip tricks or less wobble at speed - you're going to want to swap to firmer bushings instead of just cranking down the kingpin nut and demolishing the stock bushings your trucks came with.

Thankfully, Ace's AF1 Hard Bushing Kit comes with everything you need to not only get a set of Aces up to performance spec, but also upgrade many, many other brands of truck from the common double-conical bushing setup to the vastly superior (in our opinion) barrel-and-cone combo; not only do you get nice and tall lumps of high-quality urethane, but you also get perfectly sized (and solid!) washers to accommodate them.

Note that Ace claim these are 94a bushings, but our durometer registers them as 90a. As they're a brand new product, we haven't had the chance to compare them to our favourite bushings yet - that's Khiro's 95a barrel and cone setup, if anyone's curious - but once we have, we'll report back and update this.

The new FILM 4.25 Petrol truck is perfect for 7.25″ freestyle decks. Combine with either the Tony Gale or Lillis Åkesson deck and the freestyle wheels of your choice for a perfect setup.

We’ve measured the FILM 4.25 Petrol up, and we seem to get a real-world hanger measurement of 108mm, an axle of 6 7/8″, and a height to the center of the axle of about 51mm with the stock bushings, with a weight (including all supplied nuts and washers) of 310g per truck – making these trucks an almost exact match with the Independent 109mm at a much lower price.

The bottom bushing measures 14mm, and the top one is 10.3mm – with a specially-shaped extension to fit around the kingpin in the hanger to hold the hanger central and reduce slop. The provided bushings measure 90a on our durometer, so we recommend harder aftermarket ones for freestyle use.

Finally, the pre-installed kingpins are of the modern splined variety, but there is a space in the baseplate for a hexhead; we can’t guarantee a traditional or inverted kingpin would be held without wobble until we try it ourselves, but being as FILM now sell an inverted kingpin kit, it should work.
