I have like 12 tech deck wheels laying around in a drawer... Would these be compatible with my 4c fingerboard/ star fingerboard? Or are they different/they suck?

Tech Deck wheels would fit on any set of trucks that you own, however, they have no bearings and should be lowest on your choice of wheel to use. You would be better off with a cheap set of China single bearing wheels. They will surely fit your trucks (which I'm assuming are Tech Deck or China wides from 4cfb or Star). I think Broken Knuckle Fingerboards probably sells them the cheapest. http://www.brokenknucklefingerboards.com All 3 of the above mentioned shops primarily deal in China imported fingerboard parts from Alibaba and redistribute them at a marked up price.

I'd rather use TD wheels than buy a new set of chinas. Use the TD wheels and save up for proper wheels. Stop buying low quality products.

It just depends on if you can bear tech deck wheels. I mean you could blow 5-10 dollars on China single bearings, but I think you should save up more and get higher quality wheels like FlatFace. Chinas don't really make much of a difference.

don't make the same mistake as me and go straight into buying a cheap shitty china board..
Spend some time to look around for cheap companies or spend some more time and save up for a board that is made by a legit company that actually supports fingerboarding
