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:

   24 X 1 Urethane Wheelchair Tires, June 30, 2022  By Leonard Thomas (Duluth, GA)(Verified)
These urethane wheelchair tires were perfect replacements for the Breezy wheelchair that we had. They were needed because the original tires were deteriorating. Enable Your Life shipped the product the same day and they arrived very promptly two days later. I was able to change them out using the tire replacement tool also sold by the company and now the wheelchair is back in service. Thanks for the prompt service.

Great tire and price.
   good tires, June 12, 2022  By nancy d (green bay, WI)(Verified)
received these tires in two days and we put them on with a tool my husband made. it would have been silly to by a new wheelchair from drive just because of bad tires!
   Had to return, May 13, 2022  By Benson (New York, NY)(Verified)
Apparantly you need some kind of tool to put them on the wheels - You might of mentioned this on your website BEFORE I made my order
   Great Tires, May 7, 2022  By Ron Boyer (camarillo, CA)
Needed 2 tires for an older E&J chair with molded wheels. Fit great! Definitely need the installation tool, and still a lot of muscle
   Tracer wheelchair tires, April 21, 2022  By Anonymous (Kansas City, KS)(Verified)
not really as bad of a mounting as everyone has said - you will need the mounting tool. I also left them in the sun which helped make the tire more pliable.

Good product and fast dilivery
   Just Okay, March 24, 2022  By Anonymous (Greensboro, NC)(Verified)
First the good news. The tires are on and are just like the old ones. They arrived quickly and the email with the tracking information was helpful. Putting the tires on was not such good news. My husband struggled for quite awhile. It seems the tires are much smaller than the old ones and take a huge amount of force to install. I heard words coming from his mouth I haven't heard in 20 years! We knew they were going to be smaller but that small? Anyways they are on and we now have a like new wheelchair. Thank you and god bless
   Medline tires, March 18, 2022  By Anonymous (Portland, OR)(Verified)
To the person who said "BEWARE THIS TIRE IS SMALL", that is an understatement. I don't think it is even 19 inches diameter on the inside as stated. I am not sure why it has to be so much smaller than the wheel. We got it on using the cheaper installation tool but it was a struggle for the first one. The second one we put in the sun for a while and it was more easily stretched.

Consider making the tire 2 inches larger. I am sure it will hold the same
   Tire, March 16, 2022  By Wm J James (Delmar, DE)
Tire was what was needed but very hard to install. A bench mounted vice was recommended. That would have helped.
   couldn't install on Drive wheelchair without tool, March 2, 2022  By Anonymous (GA)(Verified)
Broke down and ordered the installer tool - The tool works pretty well if you leave the tires in the sun for a while to soften them up
   OKAY, January 25, 2022  By Linda B (San Francisco, CA)(Verified)
My husband could not install without us having to order your installer tool at an additional cost. but the tires are on and work
   not too expensive to fix perfectly good wheelchair, September 23, 2021  By John B (Los Angeles, CA)(Verified)
I had to order twice because I did not realize I ordered only 1 tire the first time. Why not sell these in pairs? Having said that the tire fit perfectly using your installation tool on our Breezy wheelchair (it does take some force). Hopefully they last longer than the original tires which literally crumbled away. Wheelchair is now like new!
   fixing wheels, June 4, 2021  By Anonymous (Millville, PA)
Great buy. with the help of 2 strong friends my bother was able to stretch the the tire onto the rim . We did it without a tool .YES!
   Accurate reviews, May 23, 2021  By Jonathan (Amherst, MA)(Verified)
Overall I think the reviews are accurate - This is a tough job! I needed my brother-in-law to come over and help turn the wheel. I think the install bar tool could be stronger too (it started to bend up). We bent it back then clamped it back in the vise by the smaller peg to stop it from bending. Tires are on and don't seem to mark up the floors. Wheelchair is a Medline. Many thanks for the great price and fast shipping
   Tire not mountable, March 12, 2021  By Anonymous (Montgomery, AL)
Seems the seller did not highlight the extreme difficulty of mounting this tire. It is a very poor design requiring unreasonable stretching to mount. I took it to a shop where they had a device for mounting and they could not do it after a lot effort. They never got the bead to stretch enough to go into the track. This is a terrible product in my opinion.
   Bought becasue of low price and almost returned, October 16, 2020  By Anonymous (Los Angeles, CA)(Verified)
These tire are a joke to install. Customer service informed us we need a tool for our vise which we then bought which didnt work. It turns out it doenst work unless your working bench doesnt move. who has a work bench that is screwed to the floor? Once we got the bench to not move the tool did the job. I am posting this so others will see the installation is not as easy as you might think.
   Medline, May 27, 2020  By Robert (Dallas, TX)(Verified)
Bought for my fathers Medline wheelchair. I took them to a bike shop to install (after they said they could) and found out they couldnt. Actually they said you purchased the wrong size and should have gotton a 26" size. After re-reading the paper that came with the tires and the web page again, I see i did order the correct size and ordered the install tool. The tool comes with step by step instructions and I was able to install the tires without any drama. I did leave the tires in the sun for a while to soften them up. You do need some upper body strength to turn the wheel when it is in the vise. Absolutely way less money to buy these than a whole wheel/tire combo from Medline. Thank you
   Well..., January 14, 2020  By Anonymous (Burlington, NC)(Verified)
Shipping was very fast. Installing was difficult. Would not recommend trying at home yourself. It took us about 2hours using a ratchet strap & zip ties & long flat head screw drivers. Granny was very happy to have new tires though!
   Great replacement tire - minimal cost, December 5, 2019  By logan (Long Beach, CA)(Verified)
We buy these replacement tires for servicing a large fleet of Invacare and Drive wheelchairs at our facility. Our old supplier was charging us almost double the price! The big plus for us is the fact we can buy them as needed and have them delivered in short order. Thank you

So glad parts are available for order.
   Excellent price and service, March 26, 2019  By Joseph  (Miami Gardens, FL)
Hello, using your tool I had no issues mounting these tires. They arrived in couple of days (from California) which was impressive. I will highly recommend your company in our retirement community
Thank you
   It Does Work, January 24, 2019  By Ken R (Daphne, AL)
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.
   BEWARE THIS TIRE IS SMALL, January 9, 2019  By Anonymous (Central FL)
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
   Great price for a good tire, November 1, 2018  By R Richards Jr 
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.
