Haven't checked my wheels for heat. When I come in after a pave sesh I'm literally covered in sweat even in these single digit nights, so the one thing I'm attending to is getting out of sweat-soaked clothes. Honestly though, I'm pushing the limits of these things from wheels to decks so if I'm not seeing heavy wear then the products are A-OK. And I'm on all types of terrain, even wooden decks here on the coast if a parking lot, boardwalk or establishment has one, as well as brick, cobblestone, etc. These things are heavy duty brah.
Where you at breh? Tough for us to tell you if we can pull a break meet up to go out for a rip without knowing that. And it's not like we are all sitting in the same hood either.
You put the Carver trucks on an 8" wide traditional deck? That can work, and my braddah out in SD who I stay with there threw on 62mm square-lip cruiser wheels and loosened trucks after seeing what my sticks could do. If I'm you, I'd pick up a cheaper old school single-kick that's 31+ and 9-10" wide with both wide nose and tail. You'll be very pleased with the change and you can get those anywhere on like for a few dozen bucks tops. Some shops will have them for $20.

I am saving up for a carver because I have heard awesome things about them.

Spicoli!!!! Wow, dude. I tried to PM you and my message got REJECTED because you've exceeded your PM capacity, Mr. Popularity. Here's what I intended to send you, now for all the world to see:
There's a ton of information in the current thread regarding Carvers. Too much for me to sift through. I'm going to keep an eye on craigslist to see what becomes available. In your opinion, what should I be looking for as a first stick? I essentially have no experience on a skateboard so keep that in mind!
I live on a paved private road in the woods with a nice, long gradual hill. I'm thinking it would be a blast to shred it up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Concrete surfing does not equal surfing. Concrete surfing equals surf training....
Don't get me wrong, I would love nothing more than a nearby snake run to carve the sh*t out of. But why would I want to use a carver as opposed to a normal skateboard?
Every video I have seen of Carvers is painful to watch. I've never seen anyone pick up much speed or carve up some vert... so hdbarellkilla will probably get his coveted sponsorship.
I'd like to supplant my stoke. I really would. But until I see someone looking like they are having fun on a Carver, I just don't think I could pull the trigger.
Maybe Rcarter could weigh on this one, as he actually does shred tranny. That or someone could post up some Carver footy and make me eat my words. Clemson's photos of a parking lot aren't really good PR for the Carver Clown Crew.

I think carvers are fun. I do like vert and pools but I have some carvers, beer getters, and other odd fun little/long boards. Use the equipment that fits the terrain or your style. Just as in surfing ride everything and have more fun.

Btw I've been digging 65mm 92a Noskoolz as a park wheel on my Carvers. Like them way better than the stock wheels for vert.
