Roomba 780 Tire Tread....?

Postby goslats » July 22nd, 2015, 12:42 pm

Does anybody know if there is a suitable replacement tire for the 780? Tire tread is well worn but don't really want to buy whole wheel modules. Thanks!

That is the only source for wheel tread since no 3rd party vendors offer any other option.

The 500 series wheels is only $30 each. If you register your Roomba, you will get 15% of on the parts. Continue to use the current wheels until it needs a new set. At the mean time, watch your local classified ad for a 500 series Roomba with a problem like the 9 beep circle dance or non-working battery. This way you can get parts donor Roomba relatively cheap, like $20.

I have been racking my brain on how to tread these tires without buying a whole new wheel module and found something that worked. Bought a set of those silicone bracelets the kids wear and they use for benefits and fundraising. It was a perfect fit. Got them at 5 Below for $2. Unscrewed the wheel module and put them right on. Now my Roomba is not getting stuck when transitioning to different floor types.
