Our kids love the plasma cars so much, (and any visitors that come over love them too), that any tiny scratches that could be happening are worth it...as it is minimal as far as we can see.

Yes they can be used on wood floors but once you bring them outside don't
bring them back in. The sand on the tires will scratch the floors.

To answer your question I performed a simple test and slid the wheels of our Plasma Car against a piece of beautiful walnut laminate wood flooring. The damage was not so much what I would call a scratch as it was a "scuff". The floor's finish was clearly damaged and I could not remove the scuff with a damp cloth.

Plasma cars in our neighborhood are clearly OUTDOOR toys as the kids and even some adults ride them down the sidewalk. The wheels have to be made from very hard plastic to survive the abrasion of concrete and asphalt. The hard wheels as well as wheel bearings have low rolling resistance which produce faster speeds and more fun outside.
I personally would never use a Plasma Car inside our home. They won't roll on carpet and they damage wood floors. To be fair, however, they could be used on ceramic or porcelain tile fooring but then again, they move fast and could roll into walls and furniture. see less

Our plasma cars scratched our hardwood floors. Our floors will need to be refinished.

When I purchased this car for my grandson he used it on our hardwood floor with no problems. He has since used the car outside and now the wheels appear to be able to scratch the floor so it is an outside only car.

My daugter has used it for two months, and we didn't see any scratches on wood floors.

This car is only used on the Hardwood Floors. The car is not allowed on the carpet and we have had NO SCUFFS OR SCRATCHES on the Hardwood Floors. You just want to check the wheels when you bring it back from out-side on the Deck. This is another reason the Plasma Car is Good.

We bought two of these cars for our grandchildren to use indoors. The wheel removed the finish on our hardwood floors everywhere the were ridden. No more plasma cars in the house!
