Wheel huntin'...

Okay, I need a wheel. That's the simple part.

The problem is that I'm apparently looking for an oddball size. Either that or I'm not looking in the right place.

Anyway, I need one that is 9" wheel diameter, which means like a 7" or so rim. On top of that, I need it to have a sprocket for either a #25 (preferably) or #35 chain. A brake assembly would be nice, but not necessary. I cannot for the life of me seem to find anything even close.

I know already that this is probably going to turn out to be hell, so any help would be greatly appreciated :).

Thanks, but I don't really know what I'm gonna use yet, and it's entirely possible that I might screw it up somewhere and somehow. I'd rather not do that to a particularly high-end pricy wheel :).

Re: Wheel huntin'...

Are you talking about a scooter tire?

There are some (not all) of the more common Scooter Tire/Rim sizes

4 ½” rim = 8” x 2” tire (or 200mm x 50mm metric)

4 ⅞” rim = 9” x 3½-4" Tire

8 1/3” rim = 12½" X 2¼” Tire (but would also accommodate up to 12½" X 3”)

These are easily purchased at any number of online sources. I’ve listed just a few below.

The partsforscooters page has the most in the way of options but they do not always list the rim sizes. Sometimes they just say what scooter it is for and you have to know (or find out) the size used on that model.

Some of the gas scooters are using a 10” wheel which you can get on the X-Treme scooters parts page (under model XG-505)

I hope that this helps you in your search.

Re: Wheel huntin'...

Thanks. My problem seems mainly not to be the rim, but the tire. I want a really thin tire. Doesn't really matter whether it's a solid or pneumatic tire (I would like it to be solid, actually), but I don't want a nice looking rim outfitted with a big, honking (I find that to be a very funny phrase, for some reason :p) tire that protrudes 2 1/2" to 3" from the rim. I want it to look kinda low rider, like. I'll turn down a piece of solid rubber myself, if I have to.
