Shame about the fit

I bought two new tyres for our buggy as the old ones had worn right through to the inner tube. I was quite disappointed that I could only buy them online as needed them right away. So ended up being without the buggy for several days. Firstly I had taken the wheels into our local bike shop and that is when I discovered that only tyres purchased specifically for the Phil and teds vibe buggy would fit. So I now have the new tyres fitted and are hoping that I will get better wear out of these ones.
Poorly design equals tire replacement

The verve stroller frame is poorly designed causing the tires to shread and need replaced every 2
Months. Just like a car would wear down the tires when out of balance. I would not recommend the stroller to anyone.

Cost us hundreds in new tyres, $32 Aussie each by the time they are shipped here. Every time my wife or I go for a walk it's "Make sure you have your phone on you in case a tyre goes and you need to pick us up".Getting them on the rim is a whole other issue.Once you order something, Phil and Teds pester you for a rating/review. Glad to see they take on board the feedback.
Great stroller, terrible tires

The reviews here sound like a broken record...I love everything about this stroller except the tires. I also use it as a double stroller with two small children and have had to replace the rear tires about seven times in two years. There seems to be nothing that Phil and Teds customer service can do for me - I've asked. I also no longer recommend this stroller because of this one issue - too bad.

I am extremely disappointed that I need to buy three new tyres for our Vibe pram that cost $700. The pram was only one year old when all three tyres started wearing out to the point they have no tread and the rubber has almost completed worn through. The pram was only used sparsely at best. Shame on you P&T for using inferior parts and charging a premium for your product.

We were disappointed that we needed to replace the tyres on out Smart Lux so soon. As other comments stated, when you pay so much for a stroller, you expect a few years of trouble free strolling. That aside, we found these tyres really tough to get off and on the wheel, when it came to putting the inner tube back in it was so hard we ended up puncturing it! We gave up and went to the helpful guys at Bike Barn, they had the tools to get it on.

I have the new Vibe 3, EVERY SINGLE DAY I have to put air in all 3 tires. Please please please remake the tires, I'm about to go buy another pram just because of this as I walk every day and it's very essential to have decent air filled tires.

Im so disappointed with these tyres. I only use my Vibe moderatley and have had to buy new tyres every few months. Its ridiculous and we cant afford to keep buying new tyres so now have to sell our stroller. I did love my vibe so Phil and teds need to make a better quality tyre!

I have a Vibe stroller. I have to keep replacing the tyres for this stroller. I spoke to someone at Phil and Ted about how I have to keep replacing them and if they could do something about it. The salesperson told me that my stroller might be unbalanced. I do not think it is as it has even wear on the tyres. I have to keep buying these tyres while I have this stroller. I know other people with other Phil and Ted strollers and Mountain buggies and they have never changed the tyres. It is expensive and adds to cost of owning this
Extremely poor tyre quality.

The replacement tyre lasted less than 2 month. And no response for my email.

I have had the Phil and Teds Vibe stroller for five years now. I have replaced the tires so often the local bike shop stocks 12 in inner tubes and tires specifically for me. It is unfortunate that the tires, of all things, hold me back from recommending this stroller to anyone. If Phil and Teds were willing to replace the frequently worn tires at little or no cost, I would definitely recommend. I have already spent the same amount in tires as I have in buying the stroller!
Wear out too quickly

These tyres have almost no rubber on them and wear out very quickly.
Phil and Teds don't seem to care.
I won't buy any more Phil and Teds products.

Love the Phil&Teds range and our Phil&Teds Vibe has had a massive workout over the last four years, but it is still good working order. However, we seem to be ordering new tyres every few months when previously they had lasted a year - what is going on Phil&Teds???
Quality control anyone???? Not great given it is $75 plus postage for a new set. Lift your game!

These tires lasted 8 weeks on our vibe before canvas was showing Both sides exactly the same worst rubber tires I've ever seen and can not purchase different ones as this size is only for this style pram

Absolutely horrible! I am now about to replace the tires again from two months ago.
I think I will buy a different brand stroller now because I no longer want to deal with having a blow out with my kid.

I have to replace the rear two tyres every two months. And that's only from carrying two young children - one is two years old and the other is 5 months. So they're not very heavy. I find this very frustrating and expensive. Could the tyres not be made more durable or else have other options?

We've owned our Verve double pram for just over one year and have been going through the second set of tyres (which wear out incredibly quickly) until yesterday one of them exploded. Note that I usually use another single pram and only use the Verve for longer outings. We've also had issues with the frame but luckily Phil and Teds acknowledged it was a warranty issue.
It's a big disappointment as I do like the pram in general.

These tyres are a joke! They wear out after 3 months and they are an odd size so you can't use a generic tyre. Not only that, it cost $80-$90 to replace 2 at a time. It is dishonest because they charge $25-30 per tyre where as a generic tyre costs about $10. Totally dishonest and unethical

This is at least the 6th Tyre that I have purchased for my Vibe in 4.5 years, they wear out so quickly on the back two wheels ( never on the front) and I think it is because the Brake has always been faulty on my pram and it rubs on the tyres. So far on my Pram Phil and Teds has had to replace the Front wheel ( did turn properly) the Brake on my pram handle ( would get stuck) then the whole frame came apart where it had been welded, so they had to replace this as well, now I am spending a fortune on ordering new tyres online and getting them fitted at the bike shop as they keep wearing out every few months. I certainly would not recommend these Tyres or the Phil and Teds Vibe, we have had nothing but problems.

I have to replace the Vibe tires every year. I wish the tires were a bit more durable and would last a little longer. Other than the tires... I love my Vibe, I even use it as a jogger. It's rugged and the bigger tires can handle rougher terrain better than say a conventional Graco type stroller. The double stroller is great too, better than a side by side double, a double wide would be troublesome getting around it's just too wide for doors, aisles... The vibe looks great, I love it. I only wish the tires would get some quality control and they made them last longer.

Rubber compound too soft
Written by: Viet Nguyen
Friday 02 August 2013
I had a Verve for only 18 months when I had to replace the rear tires/inner tube. When I changed out the tires, I noticed that the inner tube had mated to the tires so both had to be changed. The rubber compound is too soft for a stroller so it wears away quickly. This is compounded by the extreme negative camber of the rear wheels. The stroller is very well engineered but they choose to go with a soft rubber at the expense of longevity.
