      Tubular tyres are glued onto a special rim. The tyre is a complete circle with no rim bead. I can't imagine it being used on any type of chair but I may be wrong.

          These are tubeless tires. The tube is the tire and the valve is in the tire. I have a set I took off a basketball chair as thought they were worn out, but maybe they are supposed to be smooth.
          https://www.cyclesolutions.co.uk/p71...e---indoor-use Anyway they were mounted on ordinary Sun rims which I then installed conventional tube and tire.

          So I dug these Sealsports up the other day to see why I kept them. We pumped them up to 50 lbs. They are holding at that that pressure without being mounted to anything. I have no use for these indoor tubeless tires.

          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 look like tubulars.

            Tubeless look like clinchers but have an extra layer in them and have to be paired with special rims that look like clincher rims but have extra seals.

              That's a better clarification. Saalsport calls the (tubeless) tires I have tubular. They were however seemingly successfully mounted on standard tire bead Sun rims even if in error.

                  I've seen on Youtube a very interesting and cheap solution if you want only to give a shot. I think it can work with our rims, as they are very similar to bike's ones.
                  Of course you will have to use this awful and sticky sealant, but it may not ruin too much your equipment...
