Pneumatic wheelchair tyres
Most transit wheelchairs use pneumatic (air filled) tyres. They can be fitted to all types of wheels, including those currently using solid tyres.
Our pneumatic wheelchair tyres have several advantages over solid tyres. Firstly, when correctly inflated they give a more comfortable ride, as you’re literally riding on a cushion of air. As pneumatic tyres are lighter in weight, there’s less work for you or your assistant to do. This makes your outings much more enjoyable! Added to these advantages, the initial outlay on pneumatic tyres is less than for solid tyres. You’ll need to bear in mind, though, that inner tubes may need replacing if they puncture, whereas solid tyres are puncture proof.
How do I know whether this is the right size tyre for my wheelchair?
On the side wall of your wheelchair 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 tyres have the reference 12.5 x 2.25 (or 12 1/2 x 2 1/4) these will be the correct ones for your scooter.
The 12.5 x 2.25 grey pneumatic tyre has a general purpose tread which allows good manoeuvrability. Use with inner tube TUBE12.5OS
