How to change a tyre on a mobility scooter

If you need to change a tyre on a mobility scooter, you'll need a good guide and the right tools for the job!

First and foremost is safety; our best advice would be to have a qualified mobility scooter mechanic do it for you to be on the safe side. They have the skills, tools and knowledge to do it properly.

The method they will use is similar to that of changing a car/bike tyre. Tyres can be changed both on and off a mobility scooter. It's a simply case of deflating the tyre, using tyre levers to remove one side of the tyre, then slip out the inner tube (if applicable), finally remove the other side of the tyre and you'll be done.

To replace a mobility scooter tyre, it's the same thing but in reverse. First use the tyre levers to get one side of the tyre over the rim lip (making sure to pay attention to any tread direction). Second, you'll need to replace the tube inside the tyre and pop the valve through the rim. Once it's in you need to use the tyre levers to get the second tyre side over the lip and inflate the tube. Check both sides of the tyre to see that it's seated properly and also remember to inflate to the pressure on the side of the tyre.
