So I'm in the process of getting my first real customized wheelchair and the DME is getting together the specs for the chair. I asked him about tires because I've read so much around here about Marathon Plus tires so that seemed like the way to go. The guy I'm working with at the medical equipment place is very nice seems knowledgeable to a degree but also seems to be pushing just baseline everything, when I mention upgrading anything on the chair (even if it's something that I'll have to pay for out of pocket it's fine) he just says it's not really needed.
Anyhow he keeps telling me I don't need special tires I should just go with the most basic tire that's offered to save money, so I'm here to ask what kind of tires do you all suggest? Are the Marathon Plus tires the way to go or is there a different tire I should be looking into? My general need in a tire is something that rolls well over indoor flooring/carpeting and that perform well in outdoor conditons too like theme parks, outdoor events around town, and general city use.
I dont mind paying an upcharge as long as long as I get things on the chair that are useful to me. So any suggestions are appreciated and I'll certainly look into just about anything at this point!
