Thread: Tires with more traction for power chair

  1. #21
    It looks like you've got about an inch of space now. Do you have the OEM software/cable to program your chair? I see it has the P&G Pilot + controls.

    I do not have either the cable or the software. But from the get-go I had them program one of my modes to be max everything, so I use that if I get into a pinch for more torque. Otherwise my main mode is top fwd speed but with controllable everything else.

    Are looking into doing something similar? Or just looking at your spare motors to see what other options this could be done by for others?

    @ Tsquared, I've got a couple of those Quickies in various configurations. One of them I mounted scooter tires on it. They are about 1-1/2" taller so I'm looking to increase the speed. It already has the 8.5 MPH motors. I mounted those tires on stock wheels and have about an 1/8" clearance. Haven't run it yet though to see what happens, but I think it'll be fine.

    I posted this video last year, and wondered at the time what mod’s would be needed.

    @ landrover, front wheel drive is definitely the way to go on sand, no doubt. As far a mods it's just a matter of finding a hub and wheel/tire assembly that'll fit the motor shafts.

    I have zero knowledge of how to go about that. Ideally what I would like is something relatively easily interchangeable that can swapped out when the need arises. For example, if I'm traveling to a beach location, I'd like to swap out for the larger tires, but yet allow me to use the chair to sightsee, go to restaurants, etc.

    Has anyone came up with any new good solutions for adding all terrain tires to there power chair? I have a Permobil M400 and would be very interested in doing this to my chair.
