He did manage to find one himself which is a first in 6 years but....
    he got a flat tire, no one in two counties has the right size of tube. So ok, we will use your old Invacare chair right...nope dead batteries. So after a night in the hospital type transport chair, spent $347 for batteries and another $30 on a tube, got the Invacare going last night and the tube today, still got get that mounted. Luckily it has rained yesterday and today so no going back out yet. Next time I go though I may just forget to tell him until after the fact.

    50??? yum yum. Definitely check into the solid inserts, it's the only way to go.

The smaller front wheels I get solid, and then the larger rear wheels have a solid insert that looks similar to an inflated tube. Since it's a solid foam-like material, there's never any risk of a flat. WELL worth the extra few bucks when you spec a chair out, or as add-ons later.
    The only downside is the harsher ride, I wouldn't like to zip down a cobbled street, flat out, on my puncture proof tires without having the dentist number on speed dial!

    To the limit of my experience...The foam inserts have some give - more like air filled. Solid is both heavy and harsh.

    Given their size, 13x3 rear 9x3 front, I assume mine are foam filled, if they are solid that would explain the harsh ride which I'd attributed to the suspension not having bedded in yet.

    They were sold as "puncture proof" and cost an extra £150, I'll check them out and if they are solid they're going back to the dealer!

    This got me to thinking today about that spray in insulation stuff, Great Stuff. Wonder if I could fill his tire with that, it would have some give to it as well. I think I might try it on an old lawm mower tire or something first. What do you think? (now that I have completely diverted this thread)
    And yeah, 50 of them, they were small but tasty!!!

    True, when I refer to "solid" inserts, I'm really meaning foam inserts. Not the rock-hard old tires o the the days of olde.
