wheel chair tires


Good morning everyone. I want to ride a skateboard to practice with my NASA kite. I'm having trouble finding my own skate and when I think the prices are high and I can't. I found a set of wheels to sell in my country at a price I can afford. I wonder if it would be possible for me to practice with these wheels in the measurements of the photo. The tires are not inflatable and according to the manufacturer they can handle about 120kg, they are for wheelchairs. The place I will use is hard earth, mixed with grass, gravel and loose sand. Currently I have tried to use a longboard skateboard with tractor wheels, but their diameter is 10cm by about 6cm in width and ends up locking a lot on the ground.

You would have to make sure the axle/bearing diameter is appropriate. It will be a stiff ride if it works and no guarantee the wheel hub won't fail as there is a lot of side load when powered on a landboard and I doubt wheel chair wheels are built with that consideration. If you want to do this on the cheap (not a criticism), it might be better to try your kite on short lines and your longboard in a parking lot. That I know will work.

Referring to the bearing diameter is the same used in sktate 22 x 8 x 7. Regarding weight, according to specifications supports up to 120kg and is the bead is made in Nylon with total weight of 300grs each. My doubt is regarding the width, 3.7 would be too thin to be able to walk on uneven terrain? For Me to ride on asphalt I have skateboarding, already for uneven terrain which is the place I have most appropriate to walk i don't have.

Good morning everyone. I gave up on the wheelchair tires and ended up finding the 2.50-4 tire in my city for an excellent price, the rim I can print on my 3D printer using ABS plastic and the truck I also found for a price I can afford. Would that be a good set?

Guys, I would like to know between the tires in photo 1 and photo 2, which would be the most suitable for riding on very uneven terrain with beaten sand, loose sand, pebbles, holes and undergrowth?

Good evening everyone. Today I managed to get my skateboard tires and the truck I bought arrived. My mounting on my rim printed on the 3D printer worked but I am even better, I thought it was smaller despite working, so I ended up adjusting the internal measurement and correcting the bearing bore, which is 6001. The weight of the complete tire was 800g of each 680g truck. Unfortunately the truck salesman sent only 1 piece by mistake and is already referring me to another. In total, the cost to date has been approximately converting into $ 63.00 dollar. The shape will be cut in flat wood right now until I can buy my own. Follow the photos.

Cool that yesterday my fabric also arrived for the construction of the 7m NPW21. Soon I will post on a new topic.
