Anyway, it seems (if I'm remembering correctly, always kinda iffy) that in France people use zip ties on bike tires to help with traction in the snow. My friend suggested this might work for wheelchairs, too.

can see in the middle of the picture.
So I figured, what's there to lose? I grabbed some 8 inch zip ties (also called cable ties) and put them around his wheels.
Guess what? They work great!! Snow tires for a wheelchair, complete with studs. We have lost a couple here and there, but at $3 for 100 from Wal-Mart, I think we'll do okay anyway.
