Default Dual Wheels??

Has anyone ever put rear duals on their machine. I think it was Maxx Traxx that used to make a kit but i cant find it again. Does anyone know if someone makes a dual wheel kit or how to go about doing something like that. Thanks

I used to have dual wheels all the way around on my LT230. It was great, i could float across ponds and stuff. I got the idea from an artical i saw in a dirt wheels mag. i built wheel spacers that i bulted to the hub with the inside tire and they had another hub on the end of them witch i bolted another wheel to. It kills you in turning and it makes it exstremly wide but I could kill all my buddies through the mud on their big 4x4s, on my little 2x4 sport quad.

Albright shores runs a sand drag series. A guy showed up there with a banshee running a sled engine and a rear axle with 4 extreme hauler paddles on it. Not on the utility end I know, but sweet to look at none the less.

I don't know if this would work but I don't see why not. You could knock the studs out of your hubs and replace them with longer hardened bolts. Put the first set on and tighten them down with some nuts and then put the second set on and tighten them down with some nuts. I think the important thing would be to make sure you use hardened bolts.

Not unless you found a way to fix the rim flanges of the inner and outer wheels together. The described setup would be axially strong but would have virtually no lateral strength except that provided by the friction between the wheels, or rather the tire sidewalls since they bulge out past the wheels, at the meeting faces. IE: Roll the outer tire up on a rock and it would skid up in relation to the inner tire. Then you are set for a bumpy ride home. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]
