Installation Note - Read Before Purchase
Because this tire has no cords embedded in the urethane, the uninstalled tire is substantially smaller (roughly 19" in diameter uninstalled) than the rim it goes on and as a result a great deal of force is needed to stretch the tire onto the rim. Keep in mind most of the wheels for this tire (wheel/rim) measure 23" to 23.5" so it cannot be installed by hand or with hand tools. A solid tire installation tool is the recommended method to install this wheelchair tire onto the rim. Below is a video of our  Economy Wheelchair Tire Installation Tool mounted in a vise being used to install this tire.

Fitment Note
This tire is original equipment on Invacare's 9 spoke mag wheel (prior to 11/16/09 (Invacare part number 1080400). Also fits many Drive, Medline, Quickie and E&J wheelchairs needing this size. As of 11/16/09, Invacare switched to a corded tire (tire model U2222C - Invacare part 1118209), which can be found on this page. The tire is essentially the same, but made easier to install because it has cords embedded in the urethane (uninstalled it is larger in diameter than this tire). A tool is still required.



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. 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:

Thank you

Title: It Does Work
Comments: Had my doubts if the tire would really stretch that far to fit the wheel but it does. Soaked tire in hot water first and asked a strong friend to help. We also used some zip ties to assist us. Tire fit like a glove! Economy tool could have been a bit stronger but it works.

Title: BEWARE THIS TIRE IS SMALL
Comments: I feel you folks are not doing enough to tell us customers how small this tire is compared to the wheel it goes with. We spent a considerable amount of time finding a place that would mount a tire purchased elsewhere. After finding someone and sharing our frustration he did it for a nominal charge. Purchasing a tire shouldn''t be a hassle

Title: Great price for a good tire
Comments: After reading so many negative reviews across multiple websites, I took the chance and bought these for my Dads Drive wheelchair. It seems that people say its the wrong size tire or that it is too hard to install. Sure enough when the tires arrived I discovered they were almost 4 inches smaller than the outside lip of the wheel. You can''t even come close to stretching this thing by hand so I had to make my own tool using angle iron clamped in a vise. The wheel was bolted to the angle iron with a long screw and some washers just tight enough so it could still turn but not come off. I used a long steel pin threaded on one end bolted to just past the wheel to stretch the tire. With some effort the tire went on without a hitch. I will say it takes lots of strength and at one point I was thinking the wheel might break so maybe thats where the negative reviews come from. The second tire went on much faster since I knew it would. It does seem like a lot of work to make a tool to mount one set of tires but in the end it really wasn''t that long.

Kudos to Enable Your Life for assuring me that I did purchase the correct tire and encouraging me to make a tool even though I''m sure they would prefer me to purchase their tool.

Title: Great replacement and price
Comments: This was for a chair we borrowed for my Dad. Wanted to replace old tires before returning the chair to my Aunt. It was definitely a job for a man, but my husband and I were able to get it done. Just have to be patient and keep working at it til the tire seats properly. Thanks for customer service, too.

Title: Takes two people to install
Comments: I had to make a second order for your handy installer tool which I was going to complain about but after reading this page again I can see that a tool is needed is clearly stated.

Title: Works great!
Comments: Bought this product and first thought they were too small. Referred to this website and video and realized I was using the tool the wrong way. Mounted the tire just like the video and it worked.

Title: Thank you for all of your help
Comments: Thank you for all of your help. I won’t be returning the tires as I was able to install them. I put a piece of pipe over the brake to act as a roller and was able to turn the tire onto the rims using a little dish soap as lubricant and a large zip tie to hold my start point in place. Once the tire was on the rim I removed the wheel to get the brake out from between the tire and rim and used a dead blow hammer to seat the tire into the rim completely. I never would have dreamed it would fit on my first attempt, but after speaking with your support staff I got the job done. Thank you.

Title: Wheelchair tires
Comments: Bought these wheelchair tires and took them to 5 different medical equipment places to have installed and was told these are not the proper size and no way could they be stretched to the size you are claiming. I contacted you to return which wasn’t a problem until I find out it’s going to cost over 22.00 dollars to return. I have already lost the 9.95 shipping and now I have to pay more to ship back then I will be refunded... THATS AWESOME BUSINESS!!! Selling a product that doesn’t work and the customer has to pay to return.

Title: Tough job
Comments: Wow these tires were hard to install. Didnt buy the tool at first becasue I have a garage full of tools and am pretty handy at most things. I know now why you have all of the warings and cautions and as you can probably guess, we had to order the tool. Take my advice, you cannot stretch the tire enough and get them on the rim at the same time. The inner portion of the tire is also wider than the rim and won''t fit until you stretch it (it will thin out to fit). I put them on an old Tracer wheelchair by Invcare to donate to our local church and they fit perfect.

Title: Very happy customer here
Comments: We had purchased these tires from Amazon and returned them becasue we thought they were the wrong size. Coming here, we realized these tires were the right size, they just need a tool to install. Even with the tool, it is a little hard to install, but we managed to get them on. Thank you for having a web page that explained it ALL to us and thank you for the substantially lower price!

Title: Excellent service
Comments: We had called Invacare who explained to us this tire was no longer available yet here it is for a great price! We took the advice and purchased the tool for installation and it worked like a charm with two of us turning the wheel. Thank you

Title: make your own tool
Comments: Works for a cuiser wheelchair. we made our own tool by welding some round stock to the shop bench. 1 rod for the wheel and one for the tire. it took lots of muscle (two of us) to turn the wheel and it went on no sweat. the tire is a little different than the dry rotted one but once on you really cant tell.

Title: replacement tires
Comments: Installed these on my father-in-laws medline wheel chair. Perfect fit. Watch the installation video. You will need the installing tool or make one like I did to install the tires. Also recommend 2 people when installing as it takes a good bit of strength to install these. Highly recommend instead of replacing the set of whole tires for $300

Title: Works great, quick install
Comments: The instructions and video are indeed accurate. It takes considerable strength to install these tires. I did purchase the economy tool M040E.
I don''t believe a person, however strong could safely install this tire without an installation jig of some sort. I set the tires in the sun a few minutes to warm them before attempting to install. 2 well placed zip ties helped a lot. I don''t recall the video mentioning zip ties. I did not take more than 10 minutes to change both tires.

Title: A good tire at a nice price.
Comments: I installed these tires on a Drive wheelchair 8-spoke wheel. You WILL need an installation tool if you plan to install them yourself.

I wanted a tire for smooth surfaces that would be non-marking. I think that these will do the job.
