Our team is planning to run the robot on concrete, mainly because that’s the only surface we have good access to. However, concrete is proving to wear out the treads on our rims quite quickly. We are in the process of modifying a set Hi-Grip Wheels for the swervedrive for use in autonomous, but we want to use the rims for the teleop runs. (Rims so that we can preserve the hi grip and quickly swap treads) We’ve replaced the blue tread with pebble top, but we are still seeing excessive wear (here and here). That was approximately 5 hours of semi-constant use
What are some alternative materials/treads that other teams have found that last longer and grip well?
