& About Me
As a full time wheelchair user getting out of my van to change a
wheel in the event of a puncture or flat tyre isn't really an option!
I just cannot afford to get stranded in the middle of nowhere waiting to see if
a repair guy can get to me. I have potential pressure sore and ileostomy issues
to worry about!
for us they now make tyres
that you can drive on even when you do get a
puncture. That's right you can do 100 miles or
so at 50 mph all the way home safely!
And they fit on standard wheel rims like yours!
I just ordered a set of these
Dunlop 245/50 18 Sport Maxx GT ROF tyres. (Tires if you
happen to be an American!) Click image for a bigger view.
They look exactly the same as the Dunlop ordinary tyres do. But they allow
me to drive safely home in the event of a puncture.
If you are a wheelchair user and you drive a car consider buying a set of
these now! Before it happens! No more wheel
changes needed leaving you stranded and waiting for

the cheap Korean "Ecsta" tyres fitted to my
van at the moment come in exactly the same style, tread pattern, and
sizes both in normal tubeless and these "Run Flat" versions.
The run flat ones
are around £30 pounds more expensive than the normal ones
are. A small price to pay for peace of mind and ability to
get home easily!
How they work
In the beginning there were all kinds of experimentation,
with everything from multiple tubes, canisters of gas
strapped to the wheel centre with gunk to fix the puncture
and blow it back up, to a heavy solid rubber inner "tyre"
that the weight sat on when the normal tyre deflated.
these previous methods required special wheels and expensive equipment.
are many tyres on the market that allow you to drive a
hundred plus miles at sensible speeds on a flat tyre on your stock rims. They do this
by having specially stiffened sidewalls.
They fit onto your
stock wheels and look exactly the same as standard tyres.
They require no special wheels or equipment.
Technically you should also fit an aftermarket
tyre pressure monitor as well and these are pretty cheap.
Ranging from fancy valve caps to electronic systems that
display pressures inside the vehicle. Otherwise you
may not notice you actually have a puncture. But if you are
an alert driver you can feel it as a SLIGHTLY soggy tyre... And you
can see it as you walk (wheel) around the vehicle too. Looks
like it needs some air! So as long as you understand
this you could probably not worry about the pressure
monitors... Unless there are legal requirements in
your country that is.
They cost more, they are slightly heavier, they give a slightly
harsher ride. Its not easy to tell though so don't let this
put you off. All small prices to pay if you are a
Positives: Punctures are no
longer a worry, essential practicality and no need to carry
a spare freeing up some space in our modified cars and vans!
And its a good excuse to fit those bigger fancy alloy
wheels you wanted anyway!
And since you now need to
carry no spare wheel you can have a LPG conversion where the
donut shaped tank replaces the original spare wheel.
is my next step since LPG is far less than half the price of
Petrol or Diesel.

Powerchair Tyre Pressures What
should they be and why?
Weld Aerosol Punctures.
We just love those! At least get et a can
of tyre repair foam today!
Puncture Proof Tyres I
mean real puncture proof, like the military use.
NOT solid, foam filled, inserts or and of
the other "mobility solutions" that jar your spine every few feet outdoors.
There are better ways.
