Use this stuff to wrap around a spinning tube or wheel in order to grip or collect an object.

Green Grippy Tread January 26, 2016
Reviewer: Bruce Vadnais from Bismarck, ND United States  
Great Tread.  Removed rubber tread from standard 4" Tetrix wheel, trimmed off the plastic edges, and glued the Grippy Tread right on to the plastic wheel frame.  I buffed off the sharp edges of the Grippy Tread.  Did the 15 second floor tile test and the Grippy Tread did NOT harm the tile.  Robot is only about 20 lbs.  Really heavy robot might harm the tile.
Robot climbs the floor of the rescue mountain and crawls over the rods pretty well.

Not good for high torque/speed situations April 1, 2014
Reviewer: Steve S. from Michigan  
We purchased 4" AM performance wheels and wanted to keep wheels as "true to size" as possible. This wasn't first advertised as to use for just FTC (it was added after we talked to AM) and we used it on our FRC robot last week. Long story short, after every 3-4 matches we were swapping out tread due to the softness of the materials and the amount of high torque/speed we were putting on them ran the material right down to nothing.
