    It may be the board.twisted. Try the trucks on a other board.Or inspect your board.

    Yup. Seems your plank is warped/twisted.

    Had similar problems with Cal 1s. Have a look at the kingpin hole in the baseplate to see if it's straight on both. One of mine was visibly off centre on the roadside. Managed to get it replaced by Caliber, but my understanding is that this problem was fixed with the IIs. Also this sometimes happens with squishy risers when the hardware is tighter on one side more than it is on the other.
    Impressive selection of wood, metal and urethane goes here.

    Is this not a normal thing anymore? Every single one of my boards sits like that...the bushings deform just a little, then don't spring right back, so one wheel is just a wee little bit off kilter because one of the trucks is still "turned." It can also be caused by uneven tightening in the mounting hardware, causing a riser pad to compress just a little on one side or the other.

    Are the mounting holes visibly off-center? I know Loaded had a run of boards like that a million years ago. If not, don't worry.

    Does the board turn uncontrollably when you're riding it? If not, don't worry about it.
    yes, an uber-grippy, square-lipped slalom wheel IS the best for sliding
