    All you need is air.

    I can't name a sold tire for you, but I still use my 1995 Quickie plastic wheels with 1 3/8x24 bicycle tires.
    They came on my very first chair, a Quickie Revolution.

    my shoulders AND elbows are failing me.
    I'm 72 and 24 years T12.
    It's scary. So far, when they flair up, I've been able to wait it out and resume my life but I wonder how long that will work

    The ones I use have a little carbon filter that's supposed to vent and purify the outgas. They don't seem to work but that may be because they are up top adjacent to the ostomy, where I slime a new...

    Just an aside, because I know gas is your major complaint - gas now passes freely and never twists me up like it did before, constipated or not.
