    The biking world calls those 26".
    Isn't the code 540, 559, 590; representing 24, 25, and 26 regardless of the other confusing stuff? I remember that when I first started I went to the bike shop for new tires, all he wanted to see was those three numbers to be sure he ordered the right ones.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

      Those are 25 inch wheels. Like the people said buy the 23-559 tires.

        For wheelchairs, yes. For bicycles, not necessarily. In USA MTB (mountain bike) and road bike sizes in inches are different because the dimension refers to tire OD (not rim size): MTB tires have taller sidewalls. Internationally, it gets much worse. . . . inch sizing is all a confusing mess, which is why ETRTO dimensioning (e.g., "25-540") was established. ETRTO sizing is internationally consistent

            Awesome! I guess I will be trying these babies out after all when my current tires are worn out. I imagine the Speedruns that came with my new Tilite ZRA 6 months ago probably won't last very long. Because there is no tread whatsoever, I imagine that I will have to see belts to know when they are done...

              I tried them, on 25" you save 800 grams on pair in comparison to Marathons.

              BUT, they lasted only 3 months for me, so Marathons FTW!

                Schwalbe Ones are spec'd as 24 x 0.9. I guess that means they are a bit narrower than MPs. But because they haven't got any tread does it mean that they have a lower profile? I've only used treaded tyres and was wondering if the rear seat height is lower when riding on slicks?

                  Honestly I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the schwalbe airborne's yet. they have been on my chair 2 years (almost to the day!) for me already with 1 tire rotation (and another one due). they are fast, more comfortable because they are wider and can be used at lower pressures, and have bits of traction that do help to get over door stops when the tires are wet.

                  i'm all for the airbornes

                    I liked the airbornes better than the one's as well. I am back to the Marathon Plus tires, mainly because they can take 120-130 PSI which neither the One or the Airborne's can. I also spend a good amount of time rolling around San Francisco and the MPs can take the odd bit of broken glass or whatever that might cause problems w/ the other two.
