Wheel size/type-Poll

I would love to know what size and type of wheels every one oped for this year. Having read many threads over the last three weeks I looks like I might be in the minority by using 6" pneumatic wheels. So what wheels did you choose and what made you choose them?

PS how do I add a poll?
PPS found it.

We’re using two different sizes of wheel - 6" and 4" AndyMark Hi-Grip wheels in a mock tank tread fashion.

12 inch wheels with a lift kit.


4in non-pneumatic wheels here… lots of them… :rolleyes:

That must be a pain to gear down. The driving factor in wheel size for me as the designer was making the smallest possible wheels work. That way we could have a small gearbox with small reductions. I like things small.

Do I hear 2007 calling? I think yes. http://www.chiefdelphi.com/media/photos/26312

At one point, we were at 14 inch wheels, reduced with chains.

Currently (and probably finally) we have 8 8" wheels and 2 4" wheels, all non-pneumatic, three different treads.

Edit: I checked other.

A bunch of tiny little feet like a centipede.

Can’t wait to see these guys in action! :stuck_out_tongue:

Six 8.5" pneumatic wheels, standard drop-center. It’s the first time since 2011 we’ve had more than 4 wheels. Man is this thing heavy…

4 10 by 3 inch wheels and two 6 inch colsons

I’m curious to see what teams have come up with that classifies as “other”

7.8" wheels.

8.5" wheels

9.4" Beach tires

Did somebody say other? :rolleyes:

I suspect that most if not all of the tiny little feet and mecanum responses are from trolls.

Maybe…](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXO1kawxNWk) :rolleyes:

We are using 4" mecanum. And I’m not entirely trolling you.

And at least a couple of the flying ones.

Flying for the win!

But in all seriousness, I believe we’re using 6 to 8" pneumatic wheels.
