    Question Caster Question

    I have a "Quickie II" manual chair. It came with 5"X1" urethane caster wheels. I am considering changing them out for "Frog Legs' 5"X1.4" urethane wheels.

    What performance change can I expect...would navigating over grass and dirt surfaces be easier?

    Thanks

    From my experience, the only noticeable improvement was on hard services like concrete side walks. They smooth out the bumps in the joints etc.

    Helped my clonus on cobblestone roads.

    On soft surfaces they dig in just like regular casters.

    Thanks...I just want to colorize my chair and like their blue casters. The bouncing on hard surfaces is noticeable to me so that would be an an improvement.
