If you are in any doubt about the size of the tyre required, just check the side wall of the tyre where you will find the size number. This is where it is usually marked.
Tyre numbers explained.
The number written may be say something like 260 x 85, 3.00 x 4 or 10 x 3 , These numbers are all for the same size tyre and may say all three on the tyre .
To explain this sizing the
3.00 means that the tyre has a measurement of 3 inches across the width of the tyre and also the height of the sidewall in inches , the x 4 means that the rim diameter has a measurement of 4inches ,
the 260 x 85 is the same tyre diameter and tyre width in mm, the tyre may also be referenced as 10 x 3 which again is the overall diameter and width of the tyre in inches.
If this sounds confusing sorry.
It may also say something like 4.10/3.50-4
So here we have a tyre that has a tread width of 4.1 inches and a side wall of 3.5 inches to fit a 4 inch rim. Another example maybe 330x100 (400-5) This would mean that the tyre has tread width of 4inches and a side wall of 4inches that is fitted on a 5inch Rim, the 330 x 100 is the overall diameter of the tyre and the 100 is the side wall height and width of the tyre in mm.
Then we have a varying choice of tread patterns , these may be identified as universal, rib, block and also various specialist patterns , for mobility scooter rib tyres are normally fitted to the front of the scooter to assist with manoeuvrability and block fitted to the rear.
For solid tyres that fit to a two piece rim , the internal rim width of the hub that may required for correct fitting.
