Skateboard/longboard wheels? My quads have narrow bearing spacing compared to my longboard wheels. Is there a fix for that?

Do you have any YouTube vids of your lathing the wheels?

I skated my Route 70s today first time and I don't care about the extra weight, only the wheel overlap that may trip me up.
