Motor Selection?

I got to make a bot to which weighs nearly 300 lb and maximum speed restriction is 5mph. I am kind of confused with the motor selection. Can you which is the best motor available in the market for this purpose ?

A wheelchair motor would be a good place to start looking. They are designed to move a lot of weight slowly. You can find the maximum weight a wheelchair can carry online, and then get replacement motors for that model (or buy the model second-hand and take it apart). Keep in mind, the weight of the person a wheelchair can move does not account for the weight of the wheelchair itself. So, the motors can move the weight of the person + its own weight.
