    My last chair was an A4. I have a Ti now with wider wheels and it's harder to push on carpet. I guess because wider wheels have more surface area.

    Just something to think about.

    Try asking at www.wheelchairjunkie.com where you can get them.

      do you mean like skateboard wheels? or i have seen these other smaller rollerblade but wider plastic mold wheels at a place like Play it Again Sports. I dont know exactly what you mean in terms of wider.

          I had the 5X1.5 poly and now have the 5X1 aluminum. I think this will help you...
