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.
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:
This product is wonderfull and very good price., May 25, 2023 By Catalino Rodriguez (Anasco, PR)(Verified)
This wheelchair tire fit very good to the wheelchair. It is necessary i buy others item from you in the future. Thank for all.
Great pricing, May 18, 2023 By Maintenance John (Long Beach, CA)(Verified)
These tires fit most of our wheelchairs at our facility. The price hasn't changed much over the years too. You would think we could get a better pricing from our materials supplier but we cannot and end up buying at retail (We have budgets to adhere to). We are part of a large Healthcare organization which makes it all the more strange. Thanks for the great product
Awesome Customer Service, May 6, 2023 By Bill D (Culleoka, TN)(Verified)
We ordered these tires, and shipping was super fast. I neglected to "listen" to the pro's advice and did not order the tool they recommended and when the tires arrived I knew that I was not going to get the tires installed without it. Nor was I sure I'd get it installed with it, so I "chickened out"! In any case, the return went as fast as the original shipping to me. In any case, I highly recommend Enable Your Life for their customer service and the wide variety of parts they have available.
Great aervice, April 18, 2023 By Teresa Davis (Oakland City, IN)(Verified)
The items came two days before predicted! I also bought the installation tool and they were on in minutes. Thanks for your telephone help because I would have bought the wrong size.
Leave the tires in the direct sun for an hour before starting to put on, April 13, 2023 By Don (Orlando, FL)(Verified)
You still need the tool but what a difference the sun makes. You will see the tire be much more pliable and easier to stretch
Took awhile but works, April 5, 2023 By Anonymous (Syracuse, NY)
After reading the reviews I was concerned about whether or not I had the right size because I had purchased 2 tires and the installation hardware and was unable to get the tire all the way around. After having my son in law, who is adept in mechanical engineering look at it, he was confident that it would work so we both tried it and finally got it on the wheel. It took awhile but provided a snug fit. Also used a silicone spray to move it off the post.

Great tires but misleading videos, March 10, 2023 By Dennis Burtick (Athens, GA)(Verified)
Definitely impressed by the quickness of delivery and the quality of the product. But I find the videos online to be misleading. The guys in the videos make it seem like there is very little effort to install these tires. The truth is that they are VERY difficult if you just follow the video/instructions. I wrestled with the first one for almost an hour. I even checked the website to make sure that I had the correct size of tires. Thank God for these reviews here and the tips included by other buyers. The best advice is to soften the tires and lubricate them before installing. I heated up a large stock pot to 190 degrees and put the coiled up tire in it for 8 minutes. I lubed the tire and rim with silicon spray and anchored it with 2 thick zip ties. Then I installed it with still a reasonable amount of force. Once installed I used a rubber mallet to help bottom out the tire in the rim. Time for each tire was about 15 mins. So thank you all here for your very helpful info.
Urethane Wheelchair Tire, February 28, 2023 By Raymond Steiner (Satellite Beach, FL)(Verified)
I have installed six of these wheelchair tires using the special tool with no difficulty. A trick I do is to lubricate the wheel and tire with silicon grease to help the tire seat into the rim after stretching the tire on to the rim. The U tube installation video was very useful.

Driver tire replacement, December 19, 2022 By Jo Jo P (Hollywood, FL)(Verified)
Fit our Drive wheelchair. Small tire yes but it goes on with the tool. The reviews were really helpful in our decision to purchase this model tire and they came reasonably fast to our door
Arrive very quickly but hard to install, November 20, 2022 By Michael and Janice (Melbourne, FL)(Verified)
It took many tries using the tool we bought with the tires. We finally figures out that our work surface needed to be secured down so it would not move. Even then it was hard to turn the wheel but it went on finally. We will be ordering the seat next and maybe the pads on top of the arm panels.
Thanks you for the speedy shipping service too

Little difficult to install , but they look like they will work great !
Great set of tires, November 5, 2022 By Jesse Blancas (Pasadena, TX)
These tires fit my American Bantex (Defunct manufacturer) wheelchair perfectly. The rims dimensions were 24". The replacement tires were about 19"! Fortunately I purchased the economy installation tool. It took me about 45 minutes to mount the first tire. I found it very useful to use washers and vise grips to keep the tire and rim from sliding up the spindles. To keep the tire in the channel while turning, I used tie wraps between each spoke as I turned the tire. I did not have the strength to turn the tire all the way around so I asked my wife to help me. With both of us, we got the wheel on. I removed the wheel from the tool (as demonstrated on the installation video) and used a rubber hammer to seat the tire evenly. The second tire took me about 10 minutes. I realize that this may be the only time that I'm going to use this tool but after this experience, so know that I couldn't have mounted the tires without it!
wheelchair tires, October 27, 2022 By Anonymous (FALLBROOK, CA)(Verified)
Everything was delivered on time the only problem was the instructions to put the tire on should have included either soaking the tire in boiling water for for 5 minutes or maybe put it in the oven to soften the material . So I'm a jack of all trades I've worked with many types of materials wood metal Etc.
I just about gave up until I came across one post. About the boiling water. Also lubing Up the Rim a little bit. Well take it for what it's worth. I guess the old saying is a Country Boy Can Survive. Thanks and God bless
Had to make a tool, October 7, 2022 By Wally (Boston, MA)(Verified)
How is it you sell a tire that requires a mounting tool to put on but don't have the mounting tool in stock? I finally made the tool and put the tires on. The tires seem good and you shipped extremely fast so I would have given 5 starts if you had the tool in stock!
Tires fit perfect for my Drive brand wheelchair, September 16, 2022 By Lizzette (Dahlonega, GA)(Verified)
As everyone says they are smaller than the wheel so be sure to order the tool to go with them. We left them in the hot sun for a while and they were noticeably softer and stretchier.
Its hard to believe the original tires only lasted 2 years - they literally peeled away in chunks. And we only used the wheelchair for my mother when she was sick maybe 5 times.
But now we are all good!

hard install but it does install, August 26, 2022 By Robert T (ORLANDO, FL)(Verified)
the install tool is definitely worth the 25 bucks as there is no way to install these tires without it. put on an everett and jennings wheelchair. i was going to buy a new wheelchair but now the wheels are like new so i saved big bucks from not buying the new wheelchair
This can be done but it is not easy!!!!, July 31, 2022 By Janet (Saint Louis, MO)
We purchased new tires and most importantly the tool to install them. My husband and I are in our mid 70's and this was difficult. We did accomplish the task but had trouble getting the tires to stay on the rim where they were started. We ended up using two heavy duty clips to hold the tires on to the rim while we both turned the wheel so the tool could work. Believe the reviews when they say you need the tool. Also you have to have a vice attached to a sturdy workbench or you will never get them installed. Very happy with the result. The tires are great.
Medline wheelchair tires, July 28, 2022 By JH (Montgomery, AL)
Installed with a 2 x 4, a long bolt to hold the wheel and a piece of round broken broom stick. Drilled hole for the long bolt and mounted the wheel to the 2 x 4 (so the wheel still turns). Drilled a second hole using a spade bit for the broom stick at the edge of the wheel then clamped the whole thing in the vise. The tension on the tire will keep the broom stick in place. The tire is very small and doesn't seem like it will stretch but oddly it does. The tire also thins out to fit in the groove only after it is stretched. Once the tire is on, remove the broom stick and the tire is on. My homemade install jig worked just fine and cost me nothing as it was all stuff laying around the garage.
As others have said, this tire is small and without some kind of workable leverage tool you will never stretch it to fit on the wheel.

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.
