      Go to Spinergy's website and see what they have. Spinergy also makes wire spoked wheels, but I believe everyone here is talking about Spox type with the colored fiber spokes.

      There really are only two types of Spox, the "everyday" and the "sport." I have the "everyday" type. The difference is in the number of spokes. I think the sport is a little heavier and slightly wider, that's why I chose the "everyday" wheel.

      The Spox Everyday is available is 20", 22", 24", 25" and 26". The Spox Sport is only available in 24", 25", and 26". Get whatever size you have on your chair now.

            also where is the best and cheapest place to get a set?

            would you recommend a set of xcore over these or vice versa? the x core wheels are cooler, but i dont want to worry about maintenance on wheels so whats better?

              Josh,

              I've been running 25" Spinergy's on my everyday chair, an A6, for the past 4yrs and they are awesome!! They're lightweight, look cool and in 4 yrs the only maintenance I've done is replace the bearings and solid tires.

              I also have an A4 equipped with Xcore and they suck. In a 3 yr time I cracked two wheels. They also wobble and creak.

              IMO, Spinergy hands down...

                        I need advice here people! [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                        I have 24" Spinergy wheels on my Top End Terminator Titanium. I have had the chair for over a month now. Last Saturday I was getting ready for a wedding and one of the tires popped. Actually, I heard a loud rush of wind. At first I thought it may have come from me but upon further investigation I realized that wasn't the case. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                        I ordered a new tube for the wheel and put it on. After airing it up I put the wheel back on my chair only to find that during the period of the first blow out and the repair the OTHER tire had popped. Unfortunately, I had ordered only one tube and am waiting for the others to get here. I am in my old chair in the meantime. But the story does not stop there. I was just now about to crawl into bed and NOW the tire I just put the new tube on has popped. That's 3 popped tires within a week. All these so called blow outs happened while sitting idle. Any suggestions?

                        I know I'm not over inflating the tires. I have a tire pressure gauge on my pump. Furthermore, I also check it with a digital tire pressure gauge after airing up to be double sure.

                        They are 100 psi tires.

                        Also, it was a PAIN in the arse getting the tires off. Did you experience this the first time you changed your tubes?

                          I have black 26 inchers. No idea if they are everyday or sport though. If you are going to swap different sizes of wheels on the same chair you may run into caster angle issues. What difference this will make is beyond me, but common wisdom says you want the caster barrel angle to be 90 degrees from the floor. Is your chair 'adjustable'? One more thing, I believe if you get the 25 inch wheels, you open the door to much more tire possiblities as this is a standard bicycle size wheel (wheelchair and bicycle sizes are different apparently)

                            Do you have a cat? That is bizarre, I would say bad tubes, but if you replaced one and that popped also, I dunno. Maybe you have a burr or something sticking out of the wheels or tires causing this?

                              Stevens,
                              A larger dynamiter wheel will take less effort to keep your chair in motion. Think about how much work it would take to push your chair with 5" wheels [img]/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif[/img]. So in this respect 26" is better. As mentioned before though a 25" is more popular so you will find a larger array of tires, including solids.

                              IMO get the 25".

                              Mine are black...

                                ResonantEcho,
                                Sounds like you have something protruding through the tire and puncturing the tubes. Run your fingers inside the tire and thoroughly check for something prickly. Also make sure you don't pinch the tube during installation.

                                Look into getting solids and throw those pneumatic tires out the window.
