Bandera Wheels
 
I'm trying to resurrect a Bandera. I bought a used one for $75 that did not include wheels. Can anyone tell me what size (exactly) wheels theirs has? I want to try to replace them, as Harbor Freight has many different sizes and it would be nice to keep 'er level.

This site looks amazing and I hope to be skooled by you BBQ afficianados.

I can't say for certain, but the ones on the clone I gave to my dad were about 5 inches in diameter, give or take. I'm guestimating here, may be a bit bigger.

Have you tried to contact Char-Broil and order wheels thru them? They have parts - perhaps for your cooker!

The original Bandera wheels were $hit. So upgrade. HF has some solid rubber tires that take either 5/8" or 1/2" axles. Stay away from PIA pneumatic tires. You'll need axles of solid round bar stock. They can be gotten from any good hardware store.

Any research on wheel modifications must use the words Driveway and Wheels with TK as the author.

Please see these links:

The Charbroil wheels were $45 (plus shipping) and plastic. That would last about 1 summer (Phoenix area) here! But good idea and appreciated.
I've just removed the axle, with a BFH and WD-40, so off to Harbor Freight I go!

Now thats funny chit!!!

FYI - Harbor Freight sells a 6" wheel (plastic) for $4.99 that will work fine. Much better than $45 from Charbroil. Neither will last, but that's a $35 savings!
