Where are some good places to get just the wheels? I've got a set of custom lunching wheels that fit the brackets on both of my Zodiacs but the wheels them selves need replacing.

Or does anyone make lunching wheels that fit the zodiac classic/bombard type mounts for a somewhat more sane price than the zodiac ones?

Got replacement wheels for my aerotec legs from ebay. A few sellers if you check.

Just come across this topic - not sure how much money people are paying for these launch wheels but most of the various commerical sets seen over the years are silly expensive.

Here are some posts from previous discussions, a version of the ones shown above are very easy to make yourself with off the shelf parts and no welding necessary:

Main pics are in this first link: Beach launching

What looks slightly concerning about some shown in this current topic is the narrow tyres, I tried narrow pneumatics and they were terrible compared to the wide (F1 type solid slicks) type which rolled so much easier on shingle, pebbles, even sand.
