There are 3 types of wheels that can be found on the Radio Flyer Wagons. They are Pneumatic, Semi - Pneumatic, and Molded Wheels.
  • Description: The pneumatic wheel consists of an inflatable air tire (or a "Balloon Tire") surrounding a durable plastic wheel. The fully pneumatic tire can be found on all Radio Flyer All-Terrain Wagons. This wheel is ideal when used on varied types of terrain, such as gravel or sand. When used on the sidewalk, this wheel will provide a smooth and quiet ride.
  • Model #: 22W, 29, 32, 1800

Semi-Pneumatic Wheels:

  • Description: The semi-pneumatic wheel is a steel or plastic wheel, depending on the model, with a rubber tire tread. Unlike the pneumatic wheel, these semi-pneumatic wheels are not inflatable, however there is a bead of air molded into the tire. This wheel is ideal for use on paved surfaces and hardpacked terrain,a normal lawn around homes or parks is fine also.
