Your mobility scooter or powerchair depends on the tires to provide you with a safe and even ride. To keep them functioning at their best, your tires need proper, regular maintenance. Tire maintenance is as simple as ensuring that the tires are inflated to the correct pressure. Not only will this extend the life of your tires, it will also make your battery last longer, saving you money. Drive with caution, as most scooter tires are thin walled. This makes them particularly sensitive to punctures.
Keeping Tires at Peak Performance Requires:
Monthly inspections for uneven wear and damage,
Measuring tread depth
Checking inflation pressure
Regular tire rotation every 250 hours
Maintaining aligned wheels.
Each of these factors are crucial in your scooter’s safety and performance.
Keep an eye on the treads of your tires. Once they reach a tread depth of 1.5mm, they are ready to be replaced.
