& About Me
Tyre Weld (and similar puncture repair
Powerchairs, Disabled drivers
vehicles, wheelchairs and scooters all suffer punctures. Tubed tyres as
fitted to most scooters and powerchairs (and wheelchairs) suffer many more.
Personally being paralysed from the chest
down, a powerchair user and a driver I wouldn't want
to be without one or another puncture repair solution as it means I could be
stranded at 2am in some strange wet town with no means of rescue...
Powerchair Tyre Pressures What
should they be and why?
Personally I think the best
solution for the puncture problem goes like this:
Costly, not available in every tyre size but you can just
drive your car or van home, punctures do not matter! Unfortunately not
an option on a wheelchair.
This stuff is added to all your tyres BEFORE you have a puncture. You do
nothing. It seals them before the tyre goes flat. And it really works. Much
cheaper than the tyres above and "almost" as good. Personally I would even
add this stuff to the Run Flat tyres too. Belt and braces...
Do all your cars, vans, wheelchairs today while you
And the subject of this page
the Tyre Weld (or similar product) that is very cheap and is added if you
get a puncture afterwards...
Its only the third best solution.
But the cheapest and the easiest and better than nothing when
you are stuck on a deserted motorway at 2am its a godsend.
The problem is that it may or may not do the trick. Its not guaranteed or as
good at sealing the leak as the Tyre Seal
is. Or obviously its not as good as the Run Flat tyres are. But it pays to have
It works in tubed tyres
(which are way more puncture prone -- think balloon!) but not as
well as it works in tubeless tyres which are less likely to require it.
I have had success with it in
tubed tyres, and in tubeless ones as a long term motorcyclist
and as a guy that has relied on the stuff for 25 years until I
fitted run flat tyres to my van and tubeless tyres on my power wheelchair!
There are lots of different manufacturers. Tyre
weld works and was the first (I think) and I can recommend it. As for the others
then they may be equally good but I cannot guarantee it!
In a vehicle that has a puncture this stuff
really upsets the tyre repair guys... They wont want to clean it up for a repair
and may try to tell you it cant be fixed. It can and its easily washed out if
they have the patience!
These cans are available in many sizes. The small ones are
easily taped or cable tied to a powerchair for the day you need it. You wont
regret it! Every wheelchair, powerchair and vehicle that is used by a disabled
person needs at least one solution to the puncture problem.
On wheelchairs and powerchairs solid or
foam tyres (or "green" tyres) or whatever manufacturer you choose are
all yet another solution but in all cases these tend to give a very jarring
ride. That air was put into tyres for good reason! In addition they are harder
to push, or wear out batteries faster, and they don't generally do much for tyre
longevity either... Best avoided where possible.
On my own
powerchairs I have replaced the wheels with different ones that allow me
to fit stronger less puncture prone tubeless tyres. These combined with the
tyre seal offer almost guaranteed

We just love those! At least get et a can

Puncture Proof Tyres I
mean real puncture proof, like the military use.

There are better ways.
