    If you want to go up a size you could go with 4.10/3.5-4s which is 4.10 wide, 3.5" sidewall, 4" hole. Actual diameter varies from 11" to 11.5".

    In case it helps with this discussion, the standard SLA batteries shipped with the chair are the MK Battery ES12-12 and the charger is MK Model: LS 24/4.
