    If you never used these tiress, you better be caeful. 1.95 not eat thing up as fast as 2.1. The rubbing, you better be a "genious" if things are setup close on your chair. You will end up needing to account for the compression your cushion is doing to account for the rubbing.

      TiLite still offers free spacers to increase wheel spacing, don't they?

          Good to know about spacers.

          I added my legs in the position they are currently, maybe I should take 7" deep footrest in case I want to move feet backward.

            As of 1 week ago, I am told that they still do offer them for free.

              What do you mean by "they offer them"?
              Are they included in the package or do you have to ask for them?

                I think you need to specifically ask for them (at the bottom of the order form).

                  It is a checkbox on the order form.

                    That's really good! I'd check every NCO box that added something I could remove later, even if I didn't think I needed, at the time of order!

                    Spacers are very handy, especially the one's TiLite makes to fit their tubes.

                        curiousity, if anyone knows.. do these spacers go between the axle receiver and camber plug, or just on the wheels' quick-release axle? The latter would require adjusting the axle length when changing tires/adding or removing spacers.

                              yea, i ordered mine 1/2" longer, no upcharge.

                                I bought a demo TX on ebay because I needed a spare wheelchair, it's a 16x18 and my first TiLite, so it helped me to validate some specs of my future TR3 and give more time to order it.
                                It also raised other questions like:
                                • Side guards: my TX doesn't have ones and I will order some, could they be too flexible if removable (alu vs. carbon), can someone show a picture of fixed side guards?
                                • Back upholstery: not a big fan of TX one (same on TR?), the large Velcro bands at the top of the backrest are not easy to tune and also I'm very used to have a back pocket to put my gloves (it seems to be a European chair thing)
                                • RSH: I'm sitting little higher on TX than on my Joker despite same frame RSH, so probably my seat upholstery is too old and loose. So I'm considering keeping my current RSH and loosing the seat or reducing RSH by 0.5"
                                • Space between backrest and wheel, at 0.75" wheels can touch my backpack straps, I may go for 1" or change the way I attach my backpack.
