Can I replace the inflatable tyres on the Phil & Teds with a hard wheel?

I'm so fed up of punctures, I seem to get them constantly. The hedge cutting has finished now thankfully but I'm still getting flats.

Has anyone used those Centipede inners, or found a hard wheel that fits, or got any other solution for me?

I'm about to go back to the Maclaren side by side if all else fails, but hate that too!

I hear you, oh boy, do I hear you..

Slime didn't really work for me. There were some "anti puncture" tyres I got on Amazon that helped a little but not really enough.

I've also wondered about the centipede stuff too, although I'm actually considering another pushchair!

Try slime, it seals punctures so the tyres don't deflate. I walk alingside a hedgerow every day with my Phil and teds and the tyres are fine.

I have virtually given up with my p+t due to constant punctures.

Its a shame as apart from that it is the perfect pushchair for us but the tyres are constantly going down. If I could replace them with hard tyres I would as I worry every time I go out will I end up stranded with a buggy I can't push home!

The centipede don't fit. I bought them and sent them back. Phil and Teds have brought out a new range of doubles with proper wheels

Would the new wheels fit an old model (I have a v2 sport)? Can u buy the wheels on their own?

Really hope so. I have a p+t just sat there, no rear wheels on as dh tried to fix them and failed and its such a waste of an otherwise perfect pushchair!!!
