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.
