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..

SOURCE: I have a mpv 5

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, 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.

Cannot remove stripped lug nuts.2006 Impala 3.9 V-6 aluminum alloy wheels.

Forget removing tire from its current position. Taking it off without the right tools is next to impossible and ............

Bang the lug nuts with a nice lump hammer to loosen up any corrosion. Then try heating the nuts with a torch, and with a good pair of vise grips and and an extension for them loosen the nuts to remove the rim.

Change tire kawasaki mule

Those tires and rims on the Kawasaki mule are extremely hard to change! To break the bead I use an impact hammer (metal tube with heavy rod going through it.) I have used a long pry bar or long crow bar. Step on the tire next to the rim and squirt a soap solution between the rim and the tire bead... do this all the way around the tire. Set the crow bar upright on the tire next to the rim and a couple of good hits on the top end of the crow bar should give you a little room between the tire bead and the rim.Just get a little room between the rim and tire bead, slip the crowbar between the rim and tire bead letting the other end of the crow bar rest on a piece of wood, and smack the crow bar next to the rim with a sledge hammer. Don't hit the rim!!! You can lay a short piece of two by four on top of the end of the crow bar to give you a better target. You'll need to do this around the circumference of the tire until the bead is broken all the way around the tire. Again, Don't damage the rim!! Take a short break, because you'll need to do the same thing for the other side of the tire!
Break's over... Lay the tire with the short lobe of the rim up, (the deep side of the rim down), and use your crow bar to lever the tire bead over the rim. The side of the tire you're not prying on should sit in the valley between the bead lobes. use another tool (long screwdriver or such to keep the tire from slipping back down over the rim. keep levering the tire off of the rim. Do the same for the other tire bead making sure the other side of the tire stays in the valley between the bead lobes. Installing the new tire is just the opposite of removing the old one. Don't be afraid of using the soap solution to install the new tire, and be careful not to damage the bead area of the tire (The bead is where the tire touches the rim, and any damage there will cause an air leak). You'll get a workout doing this job!!

What causes the car to wobble side to side at the get go

your suspension, or a bent rim,or a bubble, where your tire is separating. jack your car up, put a jack stand under it, spin your tire, watch for wobble(this will tell you,if its your wheel, or tire. while in the air grab the front and rear of tire pull, and push oppisites, then do the same with the top and bottom, there should be no play. if there is, its your suspension.

Can't get the back tires off

Not a big problem. If you hit hard on the tire not the rim it will come free.If you soak between rim and brake drum with rust buster it may just come off. If you can't find rust buster try liquid wrench. No special hammer needed just a big one. Don't miss and don't get hit by it when it bounces off the tire. I have removed many this way. Good luck

Check your tires. They could be out of balance or need to be replaced all together. Also, make sure no one put stop leak in the tires. My brother took his whole front end apart and found out later on that someone had put stop leak in one of the tires and it had ruined the tire from the inside so that the only way to tell it was bad was to take the tire off the rim. Check the tread for a separation or a bubble in the sidewall.

Has a slight wobble at low speed?

you need to jack it up and spin 1 tire at a time, use a run out guage on the tires and wheels.a high speed 60 to 65 mph is from wheel balance. low speed is a bent wheel or a bad tire. belt separation

2008 cobalt has recently developed shimmy in front end at low speed..<45mph is problem alignment or something more serious??also, road noise which has always been somewhat loud has definitely increased.

Your cobalt should still be under warranty, so you should bring it back to the dealer. If you have done massive driving and your out of warranty, then il'd have to say that you may have a wheel bearing hub gone bad and needs to be replaced. Check the tire pressure first, tire condition and look for any signs if tire damage like tire belt separation. Tire belt separation is when the steel belt in the tires that keep the tire it's shape has broke and there is a flat spot causing the wheel shimmy. If your not sure,rotate the wheel by placing the front wheels to the rear and the rear to the front, making sure the tires are properly inflated to the recommended PSI. Good luck and start with checking the tire first.

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.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

It's just seized on the hub from heat and exposure to the elements. You can either kick the snot out of the tire itself (kick it at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions), repeatedly until it comes off, or hold a piece of a 2x4 against the tire and hit it with a mallet - hard. Don't hit the wheel, just the tire. Hitting the wheel may dent it, but hitting the tire (or kicking it) won't hurt it. Beat it like that and it'll come off.
