Has anyone had experience with the Wheeleez Conversion Kit from Beachwheels? Is it as easy to do as it suggests on their website?

A bit nervous about cutting mine up to try. Also once done how does it compare to the Wheeleez cart? Thanks!

I can’t speak to the conversion kit but I did bush engineer the same conversion a wee while back. Either a combination of my marginal engineering skills and/or the lure of the lighter weight, more compactable tubular Wheeleez frame forced me to retire the CTug frame. No regrets.

Thanks Blazer. I was a bit worried if the Wheeleez would fit in my hatch so took the plunge and got the kit. I was a bit worried with my limited DIY skills but fitting was stupidly easy. You just cut the ribs pull off the old plastic, boil yes "boil" the new extenders and slide them on. When they cool they're rock solid. And OMG what a difference. Getting the Yak to/from the water is so much easier and faster! Would never go back to the old wheels!

is the wheel bigger or smaller than the original wheel? i hate it that with viking PF400 you can't fit the current wheel into the hull.
