Thread: Tire covers

  1. #1

    Tire covers

    I have seen these used to protect your cloths from wet or dirty wheelchair tires when transferring to another chair or drivers seat. They clip over your tires.
    Can some one tell me where I can find them?

    I think Shaun just had an old tire cut up and then slipped it over the WC tire when he transfered.

    Thanks everyone.

    Digg,
    That's the one. Looks like a homemade cover. I suppose I can make something.

    Thanks,

    I asked him one time and he said it was "the mouldable plastic stuff they use for making splints in the rehabs...you cut it,put n hot water till its soft then drop it over the tire and mould it till it cools."
