Purchase note:
You can choose from bead widths of 2" or 1.5/8". We have a wheelchair tire with 6 additional bead widths here. It's the same tread pattern and size but a pneumatic tire filled with foam instead of being made from solid urethane and offers the same flat free peace of mind.

A Few Words About Foam Filled and Solid Urethane Wheelchair / Scooter Tire Bead Width

Foam filled and solid urethane wheelchair / scooter tires provide added peace of mind knowing you won't ever get a flat tire and you won't ever have to fill the tire with air. This added peace of mind requires your wheelchair or scooter to have a two piece wheel (also called a split rim) to be able to install them. Foam filled and urethane wheelchair / scooter tire sizing is typically the same as a pneumatic tire. However the bead width of the split rim can vary. This is because there was never standard (split rim) bead width sizing adopted in the wheelchair/scooter industry. As a result you can have several tires of the same size with different bead widths and only one of them will properly fit your split rim. If the bead width of the tire you purchase is too narrow for your split rim, there will not be enough compression between the two halves of your split rim against the tire causing the tire to rotate separately. If the bead width is too wide, you will never get the two halves of the split rim and the tire screwed back together. Taking the time to measure bead width will ensure you purchase the right foam filled or solid urethane tire and save you from an installation headache and the hassle of sending them back.
