    depends on your injury, the higher the injury less trunk support, you might need armrest instead of high wheels, 24" are best for most...

    24" are easier to get going,25's have more momentum once you get going. For me, it's more about how tall you are. I'm 6'2" and once I started using the 25's, I never went back.

    I would say it also depends on what type of terrain you are rolling on, always rolled on 24" until I got my ZRa 8 years ago when I went with 25" they are great on flat ground but horrible when pushing up a incline, pretty sure i'm going back to 24" on the next chair.

    Gosh....Now I'm not sure - I was set on 25s but reading the info about inclines, I'll have to reconsider (the campus at my university is in a valley and is pretty up and down)

    I use 25s and I really do not have an issue with inclines..neither does my husband. My husband is 5'6" and T7 and I am 5'9" and T10. In fact...for me personally the inclines are easier for me with the 25s because they travel further with each push than a 24.

    Thank you - I'm 5"7 with good core and upper body strength so I'll definitely give the 25s a go

    Good luck canuck
