Small Tyres Information & FAQs

Most small tyres have their size in the imperial notation, with the Width first and the Rim last, for example 2.50-8 or 4.00-8. Almost all small tyres for wheelbarrows, hand carts, mobility scooters and small implements will be Crossply, shown with a "-" in the size. Some tyres for wheelbarrows might have two widths, such as 4.10/3.50-4 and 4.80/4.00-8: in this case the second width is the Rim Width. Sometimes the Height is also specified as the first number before and "X", for example 16X6.50-8. Other small tyres will have metric markings: these can be either the standard Width, Profile, Rim sizes (such as 170/60-8) or, commonly for mobility scooters, just the Height and Width of the tyre in millimetres, such as 200X50 and 330X100.

A tyre's Load Index is the maximum weight that the tyre can safely support, and is a one or two digit number. The higher this number is the more weight the car tyre can carry. A tyre's Speed Index is the maximum safe speed that the tyre is manufactured to travel at, and is represented by a letter from A to Z. Check the Load and Speed ratings of your current tyres before ordering replacements to ensure it is of an equal or better weight carying and speed handling ability. 

Pneumatic tyres for wheelbarrows and similar equipment can often be expensive and time consuming to replace. We offer the Flex Pro and Flex Pro Lite assemblies for a range of hubs: these are solid polyurethane tyres which come with steel or plastic wheels. These are more expensive than standard wheelbarrow tyres, but they last far longer than their pneumatic counterparts and are impossible to puncture. These tyres are even available in a non-marking yellow compound for indoor use. If punctures are a regular problem then please Contact Us for information on these products. Please note that the Flex Pro and Flex Pro Lite tyres are not suitable for high speed use.
