wheels hmmm

So I'm very curious if anyone has replaced there existing wheels with the harbor freight dolly/wagon wheels. I didnt see any post or thread about on here.
The bearing dia. is bigger by 5mm (harborfreight)15mm and original is 10mm. Im thinking a wheel spacer or metal tube of some sort to fill the gap.

but for rear... It'll be more difficult of the square notching of the axle. I don't think I'll be able to find such parts of that matter without fabwork.
We would be saving so much money with harbor freight rather than buying original wheels.
By the way, that wheel is $6.99 tire, inner tube & wheel; identical tire but not inner tube.

any inputs or parts will be fantastic, thanks minifalcon

i tryed it they bend really easy and the bearings wont take scooting around at 20 mph for long the tires will fit stock mini q rims but they are not real rubber they are some kind of what seems to me like dence foam like the kind of stuff they make shoes and flip flops out of they should be ok for for ridders under 100 lbs on dirt but i think im going to look for some lawn tractor tires or something for mine this year hummmm

in this picture you can see when i had them on there front tires

You're saving money...Thats true but now its got you in a problem much larger that might cost you just as much as buying the right rims needed for your miniquad..

https://www.monsterscooterparts.com/...1fd488e92f6f3b

Im pretty sure theres 15mm to 10mm reducers but theyre split tubes and like Kitty said the bearings will eventually give out on you causing another problem of finding a quality set of bearings that are perfectly sized for the hub and the 10mm spindles.......

Looks like you need to cut the 10mm spindles off and reweld some 15mm spindles

As far as the rear rim I see a way to use half of a front rim and making an aluminum adapter to fit inside the front rim hub inner half that gets held by set screws.

Another way would be to make some rimbhub adapters out of some 3/16" thick steel and welding them to the rear axle......

If not an option look up like Invacare and other brand invalid scooter wheels on ebay..




Good luck

Thanks, MrKitty. The bearings are different as well as the tires, they are mush when it's under a heavy load. I'd rather it be safe for the kiddo's, I kept thinking about myself lol more homework I presume
