Swapping wheels? Adding suspension? Adding traction mods? This is the place for anything between the body and the ground!

I was able to modify the stock wheels and install these tires and tubes on my daughters hurricane. So far so good!
Here is the youtube link.

Let me know what you think?

I'll definitely be watching this one! I've been thinking about rubber tires on my sons hurricane for awhile. I've just heard stories of weak gearboxes that has kept my itch for modding at bay.

Keep us up to date on how everything holds together! It looks great!

New tires tubes and hardaware just under $100. Pricy but i want the finished product to look like it rolled off the showroom floor. Picked the tires and tubes up through walmart.com. Tubes were $6 and change each and the tires were $15 and change for each. Free shipping to the house, best deal I could find aside from used.

They would definitely look good on it! What kind of terrain are you riding on? Flat hilly? Flat ground if they are the same diameter should work perfect. Are you planning on increasing the voltage also? If your in a relatively flat area and everything else is stock i would say your safe. If they are taller which they may be that would give you more speed bud strain the motors so you may want to re gear maybe go down a tooth on the pinion. If you are going to upgrade the voltage i would say add a speed controller. The on and off may hurt the gears. I am in the process of upgrading the motors to 775's and 24 volts with a speed controller as well as steel gears. Will post update and let you guys know how well it performs.

The benifit to the ones i am running is that in extreme circumstances i can still get wheel slip which saves the gears. After all the updates i do, i may go to the tires in your pic!
