    Black knobby tires for power chair

    I would like replace all my gray tires on my Permobil M400 with black knobby pneumatic or flat free tires. The sizes are 14x3 (3.00x8) and 8x2 (200x50) for the casters. Does anyone have any good recommendations? Thank you.

    Looks like you have 13" OD tires on it? And I see you posted in this other thread here asking the same thing: http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/showthr...=1#post1888640

    So it doesn't look like yours would fit a larger overall diameter tire like mine did. It worked out for me but I wouldn't recommend that larger diameter anyway. I've learned more in the meantime since doing it. None of the tires available from monsterscooterparts really have any significant tread either.

    So if I had to do it all over again and what may work for you, is find a set of snowblower of tiller wheels that are on 6" diameter rims. The tires that are on them are just a tad wider than your standard tires and are 13"-14" tall. But the rims are just a single hole rim, so the challenge would be adapting that to your 4-hole hub. Depends on your skillset or help you have available to do this.
