    These are some of the lightest wheels you'll find for your antweight bot. 'Lite Flite' tires, made by the Dave Brown company, are a foam rubber compound, but they provide surprisingly good traction, and are more durable than you might expect. Wheels are lightweight, injection-molded, snap-together plastic that securely lock the tire to the wheel. The center axle hole may be drilled out slightly larger if needed. Bore is 5/32" (3.97mm) on all models except for the 1.5" diameter, where the bore is 1/8" (3.175mm).

    These wheels come in packs of two.

    4" Diameter
    1.42 oz each, 1.145" wide

    Decent wheels

    I thought that these wheels were pretty good, except for mounting. They only have a samll bore, and I had difficulty mounting/aligning to a hub. They are ver5y light, and grip pretty well.

    The foam grips well. That's about the only thing that works as advertised. If you're going to use the hubs that fit "perfectly" realize that mounting them to the wheel is much harder than the instructions suggest. The plastic inserts are very hard to pull apart and you can't just do it with your hands. The longest screws that the hubs come with are too short to fit this wheel. You'll need to find longer screws at your hardware store. When you finally screw the hubs on and spin the wheel, you'll notice that it's wobbly because you can't get the hubs perfectly straight so you'll have to find a way to keep that screw straight. Once you manage to patch both of those problems, the wheel finally does what wheels do.
