Braava mint tire wheel tread

Postby brooke11112 » October 7th, 2017, 10:01 am

My tread has come off completely. I tried various rubberbands but they were too thin to work because the robot would barely hobble. The plastic lip of the wheel continued to hit the floor. When I used two rubber bands it made the robot uneven. If there is a type of rubber band that works I've not found it.

Has anyone found a braava or mint tread or a replacement wheel that you can buy that actually works? This is ridiculous that a $300 robot is basically junk because you can't replace the rubber felt wheels. :(

You may want to go to a hobby store and see if you can find a RC tire with material to cut down and glue. My Mint is getting close to that point so I will be looking for a solution soon.
