The exchange roller kit has all the tires that pick up the paper in the kit (feed, separation, and pick up tires). I think the other tire you are talking about is just one tire not the set.
Also check to see a switch on the scanner that is used for single feed or multiple feed. If its on single feed it will multi feed all the time. You can clean the tire with rubbing alcohol too, to see if your double feeding goes away.

There is a small plastic gear that turns the roller, and when a paper jam occurs, oftentimes the gear strips it's teeth, and then the roller won't turn and feed the paper. I had this happen with an HP printer, and took it apart to see what the problem was. Upon finding the stripped gear, I tried to contact HP to get a replacement part and was told that they don't sell parts to anyone except HP authorized dealers, so I found a used printer and cannibalized the part, replacing it myself. Unfortunately, the broken gear problem happens a lot. About the only thing you can do is maybe load less paper, or load just the sheets you need for your print job, but even this doesn't guarantee that a jam won't occur. If you use labels a lot, they can leave glue residue on the rollers, causing a jam. You just have to keep them clean and hope for the best. In my opinion, the clean roller maintenance doesn't always work, and just a small amount of adhesive on the roller(s) can mess you up. They use a lot of plastic parts in printers these days, so they're very susceptible to breaking. Unfortunate, but that's the way it is. I guess that's their way of ensuring the printers won't last an awful long time, making people buy replacement printers sooner than they should have to. Don't think any one printer is necessarily better than the other, these days, so just try not to overload the paper and hope for the best. Sorry I don't have better news, and good luck.

I had a paper feed problem with a Canon MP 250 and solved it this way. (not my own)
After many attempts t clean the feed rollers etc. I tried the following.
I cut a piece of card stock about two inches wide. I fed this sock from the front to rear and carefully worked the card stock in and out and from side to side (flossed it) and dislodged a drywall screw !!
I realize that having a drywall screw lodged in the paper feed is not common, however this "flossing trick may help to clear the paper feed path in other situations.

SOURCE: Hi I have a canon
Most likely it would be better to put your money towards a new printer.
I suggest you Google search for the specifications and prices from various suppliers on the Internet for a price comparison.
