Traction Wheel Question Legal?

Middle School Teacher here, are 5" traction wheels legal? Not flex wheels–I know they are not legal. I found them on the website but it does say “discontinued”.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

5 inch wheels are in fact illegal

5" Traction wheels are legal, and flex wheels are too. Check out the discontinued products page.


I think the OP is talking about 5 inch flex wheels which are NOT legal for vrc. The other ones are.

Ah, you’re right. My fault.

The one in the image OP posted has the product number 276-1498, the same as the traction wheels on the discontinued products page, meaning they are legal. Here’s the link to legal flexwheels

Leg wheels also legal. Cross the barrier without even touching it… please, someone make this happen.


Who needs leg wheels when you could just have a robot on c-channel legs? Worlds meta predictions…


Thank you! Two gung-ho 8th graders found the fourth 5" traction wheel and I did not want to dampen the enthusiasm.
