What kind of treads?

Like the continuous band that you put on over gear- like wheels, or the chain drive with cleats?

www.brecoflex.com and www.mcmaster.com both carry timing belts that could be used for that purpose.

We used a triple roller chain last year for our tracks. Used hay baler belt for the "cleats" I think this picture shows them pretty well. We checked with FIRST about legality of the triple chain before using it. Who knows what rules they'll come up with this year.

...the BrecoFlex "green" belts worked really well for us last year...lots of traction...

They $$ though ~ $250, I think....
