A Few Words About Foam Filled Wheelchair and Scooter Tire Bead Width
Foam filled wheelchair tires and foam filled 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. Since a foam filled tire is basically a pneumatic tire filled with foam during the manufacturing process, tire sizing is the same. 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 tire and save you from an installation headache and the hassle of sending them back.
Perfect match for the original tires, July 25, 2016 By John (Lynnwood, WA)
Very fast shipping - ordered late Wednesday and arrived Saturday. Great support folks helped me select the right bead thickness for my chair. You''ll need a way to squeeze the split rims together to install the screws. I used a long bolt and washers which worked fine.
Excellent Price, when medicare won''t cover the cost, June 17, 2011 By Matt L.
For the due it yourselfers this product is great, just take apart the two piece caster rims and replace the foam filled tires. You will have to use the fork bolt and spacers and tighten the bolt in order to bring the caster rims close enough together to tighten the caster rim bolts. Once the caster rim is completely tightened, take off the fork bolt and spacers and install back on the fork of the wheelchair.
