Shox® Wheelchair Tire Fitment Notes - Please Read Before Purchase
If your existing tire is a 24 x 1 inch with a pyramid shape (angled sides with a flat top) on a composite wheelchair wheel (plastic) on a basic wheelchair from Invacare, Drive, Medline, Guardian, Everest & Jennings, Breezy, or any other brand where there is no hole for an inner tube valve stem on the wheel, this tire WILL NOT FIT. You can purchase a tire designed for most of these wheelchairs on this page.

This tire will fit most 540 mm sized wheelchair rims. You’ll know you have a 540 mm rim if the existing tire size is 24 x 1” (23-540 mm), 24 x 1” (25-540 mm), 24 x 1 1/4” (32-540 mm), 24 x 1 3/8” (37-540 mm). You can confirm the size by looking at the size stamped on your existing tire. In most cases your rim will also have a hole for an inner tube valve stem (meaning the rim is of a standard size). If your existing tire is a pyramid design (smooth flat top) on a plastic rim, or is not stamped with the 540 mm size, this tire will not fit. This tire will replace most tires used on Quickie, Top End (Invacare), TiLite, or any other wheelchair where the rim has a hole for a valve stem. It will also fit most rims including rims from Spinergy, Primo, and X-Core that have a hole for an inner tube valve stem. Scroll down to read the installation notes for this tire.

Installation Note – Please Read Before Purchase
Installing these tires onto a wheelchair rim can be very challenging without the proper tools. This is because the tire itself is smaller than the wheelchair rim and needs to be stretched onto the rim. If you do not have the ability or the tools to properly install these tires, it is advisable to seek professional help. You cannot install this tire by hand! Please note that EnableYourLife.com will only accept returns of undamaged / uninstalled tires.

If you have a properly mounted bench vise, you can purchase a solid tire installation tool which can be found on these pages:

   Read the instructions!, November 16, 2023  By Leo Kilian (San Diego, CA)(Verified)
As described. Had the new tires on for a couple weeks, doing well. Like the solid tire design. Seem to be perfectly round, no wobble or uneven rotation. These are not easy tires to install like pneumatic tires are. You need the install tool for sure.
   It was great!, August 13, 2023  By Anonymous (Big Bear City, CA)(Verified)
It was great!
   Great, April 10, 2022  By Paul (Ft. Worth, TX)(Verified)
tires came 2 days after order, arrived in good shape. tires cost more than they should but so does everything anymore. I was able to pop my tires on with zip ties and 2 screwdrivers. it takes a lil bit of gumption to get it done but itd not that difficult.

   Great tires, February 15, 2022  By Anonymous (Palmview, TX)(Verified)
Bought them as a gift for my partner, and she loves them. Installed them myself no tools required just alot of muscles and patience. Her chair looks nicer now with her new tires!
   great for travel, August 20, 2019  By sergio (nyc)
i run these on an old set of spinergy wheels that i use for travel and they are great. it is true not worrying about getting a flat or putting air in the tire is peace of mind. decent handling tire too. highly recommend
   just ok, July 11, 2018  By Jerry  (seattle, WA)
Since i can no longer deal with air filled tires i''m stuck with these. they feel ok but after reading all the hype i expected more
   Great Tire, March 8, 2018  By Monica (Baton Rouge, LA)
This is my second purchase of this tire. The first set lasted 12 months or so with no issues. I used to run marathon plus tires which were great however they are expensive and while never getting a flat, I would have to top off the tires with air at least once a month. Once you put these on, you can forget that. As stated on this page, you really have peace of mind (take if from me, I''ve been in a chair for 22 years). Thank you for your speedy service too.
   good tire and nice price, November 5, 2017  By Michael (Sacramento, CA)
Overall these tires are great but I don''t think they are equivalent to 110 PSI. They are easy enough to roll though. One word of CAUTION, you cannot install these onto your rim by hand. I finally found a bike shop that knew these tires and I paid to have them put on.

   great tire, June 8, 2017  By Anonymous (Atlanta)
Running these tires on SPOX rims with no camber
   Good tires!, March 21, 2017  By Bruce (Honolulu, HI)
No longer worrying about flat tires is awesome and I would say the ride is about the same as the Primos I replaced. I would have given 5 stars but they are tough to install. Luckily I had help!
   Red is awesome, December 9, 2016  By Martin G (San Francisco, CA)
The red is awesome on black spinergy wheels. Hopefuly you get red casters soon to match
