Inflation and Maintenance Instructions
Low PSI Recommended
Balloon wheels will build up air pressure with heat by nature. Therefore, you should never inflate your wheels to the maximum air pressure of 3 PSI. Too much air will lead to deformation and overstretching, thus reducing your balloon wheels’ lifespan significantly. For the smoothest rolling effect, always keep your wheels under 1 PSI, and as close to 0 PSI as possible.
Inflating Wheels For the First Time
The wheels come in a square box with no air in them. Use the hand pump to slowly fill the wheels up — an air compressor inflates them too quickly and therefore may damage your brand new balloon wheels. You want to put just enough air to start to round them out. Again, these wheels are designed to stay at a low PSI so they can squat on softer surfaces. The rubber will soften up in warm temperatures. In cold temperatures, they will roll a little stiff, until they warm up.
Maintaining the Wheels When Not Using
When storing your cart in the off-season or when storing the cart, let the air out of your wheels to ensure they are not in a situation where air pressure can increase. Balloon wheels require maintenance, so check the air pressure often. You are using them in the sun and on very hot surfaces, which will cause the air pressure in any style wheel to build. Balloon wheels use a stretchable material, so too much pressure will cause the wheels to stretch and/or deform.
Repair and Warranty
Do your wheels come with a warranty? No, no one offers a warranty for these balloon wheels. We do cover manufacture defects, typically not holding air. You have 30 days to contact us to see if a wheel is covered, we do not pay shipping for you to send them back to us to inspect or us to send them back to you unless a replacement is needed – in that circumstance we will pay the return shipping.

Best option for upgrade. Watching all those people on the beach with small tires, ending up dragging it.
Rotate easily over terrain with it bearings and larger size,definetly worth the upgrade
We chose these wheels as we are blessed with wonderful, deep sand on our beach. Wanted the best option to make pulling easier for all ages.
These wheels are a must! So much better than the smaller wheels including the bearings for the loads that I take to the beach for a party of 6 or more.
I would recommend upgraded to the 16″ tires, but I’m sure the stock tires would perform just as well, due to the great design of the cart.
Upgraded to these wheels and they worked great. While I can’t say how much better the 16″ works than the standard 12″, I can say that I don’t regret my decision. Airing up the wheels was straightforward and easy too with the supplied hand pump and cardboard template so you know exactly how much air to put into the tires.
made the cart much easier to pull. but u must follow the exact instruction when initially put air into it.
Good quality so far. 1 week of use on beach cart
Very easy to assemble and really helps in the sand. I recommend this upgrade
Much improved over smaller ones
Worked well as described. I probably had 1-2 psi.
Was an uprade to what comes stock.
Awesome upgrade .. Quick response and delivery.
Went with the 16″ balloon wheels in order to turn a hitch rack into a beach cart. Wheels hold the weight of cart and gear and can maneuver soft sand and obstacles. Wish they were less expensive but cannot be happier.
Love it, but haven’t had a chance to use yet. They seem like they are going to work well.
We absolutely love the wheels. They look amazing and the tread makes moving through the sand even easier.
