Question about Radio Flyer Pathfinder Wagon
I have a Radio Flyer Pathfinder Wagon and I want to be able to take it out on the beach with my kids, unfortunately the tires arn't built for sand. I was thinking about putting some kick *** tires on it and making it a really cool monster truck for them. Any suggestions on what kind of wheels/tires I can use (lawn mower, go-kart, etc) and how would I go about doing it. PS ... the wagon doesn't have axels, which makes this project even harder.
10"x 3.5" pneumatic tires on rims can be purchased locally at many stores for $6.00-15.00 each and these are the same size used on Radio Flyer models with all-terrain tires. They have 5/8" axle bores and can support 300 lbs. at 30 psi. The trick is modifying or replacing the factory 7/16" dia. spindles to receive the larger 5/8" bore wheels. You could consider securing them with cotter pins or hex nuts (if using a threaded rod). With larger tires, there are also slight clearance issues on the front caster spindles and wagon body at the rear wheels. With fab/weld capability and some technical savvy, you should be able to have a unique lightweight transporter of small kids and equipment that proudly does the job between the beach parking lot and water's edge. I say "unique" because looking all over the Internet, I haven't seen plans for modifying the Pathfinder for all-terrain tires and the manufacturer hasn't yet brought the two designs together. You're on your own from here, so good luck.
