    Wheel size question, I have 25" wheels will these tires fit?

    Hi guys,

    So I got my new chair but want to make some changes, currently I have 25" grey kenda's and my wheels are 25" LX Spinergy's.

    I want to buy Schwalbe RightRun RED/BLACK wheels but it looks like they have a lot of color's for 24" but for 25" it only say BLACK/GREY. Whats up with that?

    Will my wheels fit a 24" tube i'm guessing not unless it stretches.

    The wheels I wanted were the red/black here:

    Actually yes your wheel will fit a stretched 24" tube, however the tube is what is inside the tire and that holds air. If your wheels are 559's then you can only fit 559 tires on them not the 540's that go on 24" wheels. No stretching will accomplish that.
    Most everything I say is

    You can not use 24" tires in 25" wheels. It's impossible.
    Take a look on Primo V-Trak.

    Too bad spokes for it are so expensive. I'm want black spokes in a 25" LX. I would've bought these wheels off of you if I could slap black spokes in for relatively cheap. Then you could've went with 24's.
