Puncture proof solid mobility scooter tyres
Our puncture proof solid mobility tyres have a polyurethane filling which has several advantages over rubber infilling. Firstly, polyurethane infilling gives you a softer ride than rubber. This has got to be good news! It also makes the tyre lighter, which means that there’s less work for your mobility scooter motor to do. This in turn helps the motor brushes to last longer. Compared with rubber filled solid tyres, polyurethane filled tyres are longer lasting.
Which is better – solid or pneumatic?
This really comes down to three points, namely, comfort, convenience and cost. Generally pneumatic tyres will give you a more comfortable ride, and the initial outlay is less. They are also lighter than solid tyres. On the other hand, solid tyres are puncture-proof. This gives you peace of mind that you won’t have the hassle of a flat tyre – and could also save you money on tyre repairs in the long term.
Please note that solid tyres can only be fitted to split-rim mobility scooter wheels.
How do I know whether this is the right size tyre for my mobility scooter?
On the side wall of your mobility scooter tyres there will be a size reference, or maybe several reference numbers. These indicate the diameter of the tyre, the width of the tread and the height of the side wall. The system can be quite confusing as measurements might be in mm or inches. However, all you need to know is that if your solid tyres have the reference 260 x 85 or 3.00-4 these will be the correct ones for your scooter.
The 260 x 85 grey solid block tyre has a block tread normally used on the back wheels of your mobility scooter to give extra traction. For rib tread tyres suitable for front wheels see the C179S.
Solid tyres can only be fitted to split-rim mobility scooter wheels. If your mobility scooter currently uses pneumatic tyres with inner tubes the C248PNI tyre will be more suitable.
