You are much better off just buying the flat free drive tires with the wheel attached for @ 55 each. With that being said, the wheel will separate it takes a lot of elbow grease, a large flat head screwdriver and patience. Be very careful not to tear and/or stretch the tire bead and resist the temptation to spray lubrication of any sort to separate it. Again, call Hoveround or look on ebay and order two with the wheels.... you will be glad you did..

Bird If you have help you can tilt the chair to the side of the good tire and place a block under the frame behind the flat tire set it down on the block to lift the flat tire off the ground enough for you to remove the bolt holding the tire on the axle remove the tire assembly and the rim is a split one remove the 4 nuts holing it together and remove the tire and tube to patch the tube then reverse the procedure to get it back together. Put grease or vaseline on the axle before you put the rim back on and then tighten the nut you should be rolling again Hope this helps

SOURCE: Bought 3 yr.old MPV4 with dead batteries and flat

You should be able to get batteries from the Company or a company that sells wheelchair batteries, as far as the tires, those type of wheelchair wheels are a lot smaller than standard wheels, I don't think you'd have much luck with that, they make tires that aren't foam filled, but are solid rubber wheels, and that would be more what you would need in that type of hoverround.. as for the manual, look online, go to their website, www.hoverround.com if not ask around. Good Luck

Try tightening the nuts that hold the wheels onto the chair. Make sure they are very tight.

SOURCE: Hoveround rear tire needs inflating

I don't think you have an MPV4. That model has 2 rear caster tires that are solid and require no inflation. The front drive tires have a valve stem sticking out of the center rim that is easily accessible. Make sure your power chair is gray and says Hoveround on it.

Motorcycle tire and tube changes made easy


Changing your own tires isn't as duanting of a task as you may think. The first rule is having a nice pair of tire irons or spoons-not screwdrivers or prybars. I prefer spoons, but either can be purchased for 10-20 dollars from any motorcycle parts outlet. After you get your irons or spoons, don't use them for prybars or any other use other than changing tires. It's important that they stay free from nicks and scratches so they don't damage tire beads or rims and puncture tubes.
A five gallon pail makes a good tire changing stand. Place the rim and tire on top and remove the valve stem to release the air if it isn't already flat. Remove the retaining nut from the valve stem and push it into the rim. Loosen the bead locks if you have them and push them into the rim as well. Sometime these get stuck, if you need a hammer be sure not to damage the threads. Leave the nut on the top, it's not necessary to remove the rim locks just get them off the bead of the tire.Break the bead down around the entire rim and apply soapy water with a brush or I keep a spray bottle in the shop.Use plenty, it won't hurt anything. Pry the bead over the top of the rim, hold it with the spoon and move 2-6 inches around the rim and do the same thing with the other spoon. Keep repeating until you have the entire bead off one side. Flip the tire and rim and repeat the process. On the second side, once you get about 1/2 way you should have enough slack to pull the rim into the open side of the tire, grab the other side of the tire and pull it over the rim by hand, tube and all.Take soapy water and a scrub brush and clean all the dirt from the inside of the rim. Be sure to realign the rim liner so the holes line up with the valve stem.
Installing the tire and tube goes like this. Put the tube in the tire and put enough air in the tube just to give it it's proper shape and fill the tire. Remove the lock nut off the valve stem, if it has 2, leave the bottom one on. Apply plenty of soapy water to the inside of the tire ,tube and both beads.Open both sides of the tire beads at the valve stem, insert it thru the hole in the rim and install the lock nut, then lay the tire over the top of the rim. Apply more soapy water to the rim and start to pry the bottom bead over the rim from the valve stem in both directions. When you get to the rim lock, you'll need to flip it over and carefully pull the bead past it and then push it in the tire so it's in between the beads. Flip back over to the side you started on and finish the bottom bead. If it dried out apply more soapy water and start the top bead from the valve stem around in both directions.Only put the spoons in far enough to catch the edge of the rim to prevent puncturing the tube. As you start to get about 1/2 way around, compress the section of tire that's already mounted so the beads can move towards the center of the rim; that will give you some slack and make installation of the last 1/2 of the tire easier.When you get to a rim lock, you'll need to push it into the tire so the bead can get in between it and the rim.Finish the top bead, inflate it to insure the beads seat and then tighten the rim lock. Be sure not to exceed any bead seating pressure maximums listed on the tire. Let air out of the tire until the recommended pressure is achieved. Good luck!

I need to remove tire?


You will need Socket wrenches, a big ***** Driver and air valve tool if there is a pneumatic tire involved, two 3"-5/16" bolts w/nuts and washers. I like to tip the chair on its side. and loosen the main shaft nut and remove it. Then wiggle the tire back and forth, then lift. If you are lucky it will slide right off. then you can let the air out of your inner tube or go straight to removing the split rim bolts. the ***** driver is used between the rim and tire and pry apart the tire from the rim, work around the the rim until the tire is off on both sides, If this is a foam filled tire then you will need 2 5/16" Bolts w/ nuts and washers replace the tire and line up the hole for the bolts and push the rims together so the long bolts can make it long enough to put the nut on. the nut down a little then put another one on opposite side to pull the wheel in tighten the bolts a little on each side evenly until the original bolts are able to be used to tighten then take out long bolts and install all the rest of the shorter bolts. tighten them up and grease the shaft and put the shaft key in the slot and gently put the wheel on and tighten the shaft nut. Check to see the wheel turns with the shaft. the key can slide out some times Then tip the chair up and see how it drives. Sorry no pictures yet.

How do you change a innertube on a back wheel of a mountain bike


You have to remove the entire wheel from the bike. Then change it just like you'd change a front tire... remove oneside of the tire from the rim, pull out bad tube, clean rim, put in new tube, put tire back on rim, inflat tube... good to go. There are 1,000,000 videos on YouTube to show you this process.

Air pump fits on front tire valve, but not on rear. won't catch valve stem...both are schrader valves. help???


The tube has rotated on the rim. You will need to let the air out of the inner tube then "break the bead " on the tire to free the tire from the rim. With the tire edges now separated from the rim you can squeeze the tire and tube together as you turn the tire in the direction needed to rotate the inner tube back into alignment with the hole in the rim. Now refill the inner tube to 5 lbs less than the max pressure noted on the sidewall of the tire. Low tire pressure is what allowed the tire to spin on the rim, taking the tube with it.
