    Just get some 4"(100mm) scooter wheels. You can get pretty much any color/style you want. Cheap, too. Lots of 'em on fleaBay.

    Thanks. In an emerg. situation I would consider scooter wheels. Otherwise they tend to be too narrow for my tastes.

    Hey Essie,

    Haven't said anything til now 'cause I wasn't sure I could find them, but I did. I have a set of the black composite wheel w/ black tire 4x1.4 FL's that came from TiLite on my ZRa. They are brand new, with maybe a couple miles on 'em, I replaced them with an anodized alum set days after I got my chair.

    $20 plus shipping sound good?

    edit: you can kinda see what they look like in the pics in this thread. And the last "click on" pic in post #47, shows what the tire looked like when I took them off, the non shiny tire is it.

    Hmm, you've had such good luck maybe I need to make a thread! I've been wanting to try frog leg soft rolls for over a year but don't have the cash. Someone offered me a great deal on 4x1.4 before but I need 5x1.4. Never thought to make a post, I guess I just figured if anyone had any to sell they'd have listed them already and I check this section regularly.

    Sent you a pm! Not sure how yellow is going to look on my chair, but that's a deal I can't pass up!

    My chair is blue with blue striped right runs, and I painted my spokes and forks purple. I've been thinking about trying to bring my forks back to black, so I think I'll go ahead and do that. Maybe remove the purple from the spokes too, they would match the frog leg hubs that way. And I think blue and yellow would look better than blue, purple, and yellow lol.
