• High-quality neoprene foam tires mated with our popular Snap Hubs give you a lightweight, shock-absorbing, high-traction solution for transferring power to the ground.
• Unlike hobby airplane wheels, the diameter will always be accurate and the material won't change between batches.
• Diameters from 25.4mm-76.2mm (1.0in-3.0in) in 6.35mm (0.25in) increments.
• Widths of 12.7mm and 19.1mm (0.5in and 0.75in)
• 10mm bore for a snug stretch-fit on Snap Hubs.
• Includes: One pair of wheels. (Snap Hubs sold separately. Make sure to buy the correct Thin/Wide to match your wheels.)

Foam wheels are excellent at preventing shock from destroying delicate gearmotors. If they get hit, the wheel will usually only tear or lose a chunk, unlike hard wheels that will break and immobilize your robot.
As with any foam wheel, once you have mounted them on your hub it is a good idea to spin the wheel while sanding it to make it perfectly true.

Your Antweight needs these wheels.

- 24th January 2018

The snap wheels are great. Affordable, light weight and able to absorb a hit.

Great value when you buy the hubs at the same time

- 13th August 2015

Very light, decent traction. I have also found that my gearmotors seem to last longer due to the shock absorbing properties of these foam wheels.

Light and consistent

- 19th October 2014

The Snap Wheels are a nice upgrade from lite flites. Traction is similar, but with the Snap Wheels you get wheels that are round from the start. They also pair nicely with the Snap Hubs for a tough and light wheel solution.

RamVac uses Snap Wheels

- 25th September 2014

I've had RamVac for over 4 years and over 100 fights, but one of the most significant improvements I've made in the past couple years is going to FingerTech's Snap Wheels.

FingerTech Snap Hubs (pair)FingerTech Snap Hubs (pair) - 15.32 CAD
• Foam wheels are the preferred choice for combat robots because they absorb impacts and save your drive motors from stripping teeth!
• Combine with our Snap Wheels, or if you already have Lite Flites (or their thinner counterpart Lectra Lites) they can be used with Snap Hubs too!
• With Snap Hubs, you can easily and securely mount these foam tires to your robot.
• The foam tire is held tightly by a custom washer, and features a recess to keep the snap ring from getting hit by weapons.
• The hub is secured to the motor shaft by a strong 8-32 setscrew.
• Available with 3mm and 4mm shaft bore, but can be drilled out as big as 6.35mm (0.25in).
• Make sure to choose the correct Thin/Wide size to match your wheels.
