Compatible with dot v3

Its not meant to be: but has anyone tried to use these air filled wheels to put on the dot v3? To convert it from plastic hard wheel to air filled wheel. They seem to have the same axes.
Plastic Rim bends easily
Written by: Meganp
I am now considering my 3rd replacement purchase of a rear wheel for my explorer stroller. I am a runner, and love how I can fit both kids front and back in this one of a kind stroller. I've loved it...EXCEPT that the wheel rims are made of plastic. During winter months where temps fluctuate, or when flying with our stroller, the tire pressure increases and decreases without us realizing it. When the pressure increases it causes the plastic rim to warp, making the tire bulge. The ONLY fix to this by the time it warps is replacement. I'm so tired of spending money over and over on this product. I recently bought new tires to replace a tube that ripped at the air nozzle. But because the rim has warped AGAIN after traveling I must buy the entire wheel again. (They don't sell just the rim...you must buy the tire with it). Frustrating for sure

All I got was a tire to replace the one my husband blew up. The tire works fine.

I'm tired of having tire issues. We have been having trouble now for almost 2 years. Ready to throw stroller over a bridge. We used to love it & brag about it to everyone who'd listen.

I got a new wheel for my 8 year old sport. I love love love this product and service is exceptional. I had a blow out for the first time and had to wait for my new wheel before I could use my pram again. Only took 5 days. Thank goodness

I received shipment faster than expected. The wheel assembly is holding up so good so far. Afraid to leave in my truck so it won't pop in the heat.
Very impressed, Quick Delivery perfectly fitted

I have been having nothing but problems with my tires. The tubes are continuesly popping. Ive gone through 5 phil and ted tubes and 2 whole wheel bases for them blowing out the sides. Just when i pay all this extra money on top of that to have heavy duty tubes and liners put in i find that the wheel rim is blown out again. cheap plastic parts. ready to just trash this stroller.grrrrrr
It works, but sometimes needs to be re-shaped
Written by: sarahy207
I've had my phil and teds for a few years now and I love it. My only complaint is that the plastic wheels are not the greatest quality. I replaced the one that was broken, but the bent one could easily be repaired with a hair dryer and pliers. Just remove the tube and tire, then heat the wheel with the hair dryer until you can bend the plastic with the pliers back into the proper shape. I do like that the replacement wheels are complete and I don't need to purchase anything else, but it is also nice to save the money and not buy new wheels if I don't have to. Also, you can buy better quality tires than theirs on amazon by simply purchasing the right sized bike tire for a kids bike instead of a pram stroller tire. I haven't had a blow out since.

I bought a rear wheel about a month ago and I'm so glad I did. It was bought to replace a broken wheel I had on my stroller. It is great. It was super easy to install and it is rolls so smooth.

Phil and Ted's spare wheel purchase
Written by: Pao1
I bought my spare wheel about the delivery was smooth. I was also delighted that replacing my old wheel with my new one was soo very easy. It's like I have a new stroller, thanks Phill and Ted!
So far so good

While not thrilled that the original wheel for warped, the replacement is working just fine. So, yay. Crossing my fingers that it holds up better than the first.

I managed to over inflate the wheel/tire assembly and needed a replacement. The new wheel assembly fit perfectly
Stroller tubes always pop
Written by: ydenn
I wish that Phil and Teds would listen to these reviews about their stroller tubes. I asked for my stroller thinking that this is the best stroller for me, but what I didn't know was that their tires are garbage! I have to keep purchasing tires and tubes because I get a flat all the time. I use my stroller to go on walks with my kids and I am way under the max weight. There should be no reason to get a flat tire all the time.
Broke in 2 days
Written by: kReesh175
I bought a Phil&Teds Navigator about 1 year ago. We love the stroller, especially the ease of use and the mobility provided by the front wheel. One of the rear wheels deflated/popped after about 16 months of use. I am not sure what the cause of the flat was, but I purchased another wheel to replace it. Within two days, the second wheel was flat as well. I haven't yet decided whether to purchase another wheel to replace that one or to find another company and purchase a different stroller.

New wheel made a huge difference in the performance of the stroller - I should have replaced it ages ago! It was so easy to replace. It literally took no more than 10 seconds flat!
Tires warp easily
Written by: cath77
These wheels tend to warp easily. I have had two warp in less than one year, even when inflated according to the guidelines, and have had to replace.
Written by: jojo55
I have had my phil and teds for four years, and from the very start I have had problems with my wheels. They have never blown up uniformed so the stroller wobbles. Now the tub doesn't stay inside the rim because the plastic has bent and it is becoming worse and worse. I think the replacement parts are way too expensive, and for buying an expensive stroller I was expecting better quality!
concerned re wheel.
Written by: Topspot
New rear wheel arrived in post, pressure in tyre appeard to be high, when spun on the axle rim didn't run true indicating that high tyre pressure may have already started to stress / split the rim.
It appears the wheel may have been dispatched with a tyre pressure at or near the maximum and that due to heat / sun exposure while in the post this may have increased to a sufficient level to cause damage to the plastic rim.
Unfortunately there appears to be no other replacement wheel options available so you are forced to either buy an expensive genuine inferior plastic rim or scrap the stroller and buy a different brand.

I got this about a month ago and it was exactly what I needed. the only problem is I should have bought two of them. it makes a huge difference to have new tires. So I will be buying another new rear tire and a front tire.

We have owned 3 P&T's. Liked the design. Have had repeated problems with the wheels. They frequently need air. This one simply blew after adding air-- just below the required PSI.

The wheels I bought arrived in great condition very quickly. It's clear they take the time to provide good service for people who shop here.
great product but no instructions
Written by: tan789
The wheel is great and was exactly what I needed. The only reason I'm giving this a 4 instead of a 5 is that the product came without any instructions, so I had to look up a bunch of videos on YouTube to figure out how to put it on.
Item was exactly as described.

Great thing about P&E's spare parts are that they're easily installed. Bad thing is that they're rediculously expensive for what they are.

Exactly as described. Fast shipping. Fit perfectly.
Super easy to install!!
Written by: Roklobstr
The one thing I love about my stroller is that the parts are super easy to install. A few feels ago I ran over my stroller with my Jeep and the only thing broken was the wheel. I ordered a new wheel and put it on in 30 seconds, and the stroller is as good as new! My old stroller would have been toast and would had to buy a new one!

Easy to find replacement part on website, easy to order and outstanding service. Had the part at our door in less than three weeks. Thanks we can go for family walks again.
Written by: Overlord
These wheels are made of soft plastic and don't allow you to pump the tire up past 22psi without blowing out the side of the wheel. You can't inflate the tires enough and it feels like the tires are all low. We've had to replace 2 wheels for the side splitting out. The tires/tubes also get big bulges in them.
Buggy by Phil & Teds
Written by: Nathalie J
I bought a p&t explorer buggy nearly 5 years ago. We have had so much use from it. We've even taken it overseas on a number of occasions. It is great to know that I can still buy parts for it although this model has been discontinued. It is still going strong and the only reason why I needed a new wheel is that I ran over it with my car!!!
New rear wheel
Written by: Mar99980
I bought a new wheel to replace my old one which exploded. I was happy with the service/delivery etc. the reason I needed a new wheel is because the tyre pressure on the wheel and rim is different and my wheel exploded when pumping it up. Might be worth looking at changing this?
Super fast delivery
Written by: Emily H
The sun melted one of the wheel wells of my Phil and Ted Sport stroller. No one could fix it locally. Thank goodness the part had not been discontinued. I purchased the stroller back in 2008! I was so pleased that the wheel fit perfectly, but even more impressed that the delivery was so speedy. Less than 10 days!

We purchased a new tire for our Explorer Sport...shipping was very fast, tire was easy to put on, and we were back jogging in a few days!

We immediately replaced the warped tire and went for a walk!

I needed a new rim as the original was warped/ damaged causing many flat tyres. After multiple tube repairs / replacements I phoned around locally to see if outlets stocked but they did not have. I finally called phil & teds for a fresh start. Unfortunately it came as a whole wheel and not just the rim so bit more costly but the service was good over the phone and it arrived well. I am back on track with the kids again! Thank you

New tyres = easy to move again! Purchasing the new set of wheels has made our pram like new again. I bought the pram secondhand and discovered the front wheel didn't pivot easily and the back ones were bulging when fully inflated. New tyres have made all of the difference!

Purchased a replacement tyre for Explorer pram. New tyre seems fine, although frustrated that original rear tyre failed (pram 4 years old) for no apparent reason.

I bought this rear wheel and installed it in seconds. I will be getting a spare to keep with me.
The axle was super easy to remove from old wheel.
Does the job!
Written by: Lynne
New wheels arrived today (earlier than I thought they would) and after having fitted them, the stroller moves so freely, no wobble! I assume this is what they should have been like when I bought the pram new, but I thought the wobble was because of the way the tyres were blown up. Turns out they've always had a dent on the rims. I just wish I'd realised while the pram was new and I wouldn't have had to fork out $140...
Written by: gabi
I was happily surprised at how fast the wheel came to my door. It was easy to change but there was a pin hole in the tube and I ended having to go to Canadian tire to get a new one the following day!

4 days after I bought it...the pram was ready for rock and roll!!!!!!!
Written by: brenwaterys
While the replacement wheel is working great the underlying reason that I had to replace the wheel is very frustrating. This is the second wheel that I have had go bad due to the rim warping and no longer holding the tire in place. I would think an altered design or a different material should be used in order to prevent this from happening. Otherwise we have been extremely pleased with our Explorer stroller and it works great for our 3 1/2 year old and our 15 month old using the dual seats.
Fantastic and easy to install.

This was our third wheel to have to reorder. The rest of the stroller has been wonderful since our buying it 7 yrs ago, but the quality of the wheels has been aggravating.

Doesn't hold air well
Written by: SarahQ
The wheel is easy to put on the carriage, but it doesn't hold air well. I find I have to pump it at least once a week- and my daughter is only 18 pounds and it doesn't get so much use. A bit annoying
Order process easy TAT too long
Written by: olia
The wheel is like explained in the showroom. Unfortunately I had to wait very long and packaging was quite poorly.
The only reason why I would buy again is if I need a spare part.
Round, round baby
Written by: CheekyMum
The best feature about this 12 inch wheel was it was round. It fitted perfectly as it was identical to the old wheel. However I was disappointed there wasn't a selection of tyre colours to choose from, or the ability to pick a coloured valve cap, so we could really pimp the kids' ride :)
Great stroller, terrible rims.
Written by: S.B.
The stroller is great. It handles well, the kids love it, and it is even cool looking. And I like the real wheels for a smooth ride. But why the terrible plastic rims? The tires bulge out because there is very little lip on the cheap rims. I can figure out why they would skimp on the most important aspect of a good stroller.
Rear wheel blowout . . .
Written by: Brian
I have had nothing but good to say about this stroller, it is WONDERFUL and I would NEVER even consider getting a different one, that said, I must share a remarkable story, the reason for my having to replace a rear wheel and axel. I was pumping up the tires yesterday and read that on the outside of the tire it says max. 35 PSI . . . the gauge on my pump said 25 when there was a loud POP and the inner tube had cracked the plastic wheel casing and the inner tube was shredded! Upon further investigation I realized that on the inside of the wheel itself it read "Max 25 PSI"!!! Anyway, thats my story and why I rated this particular part 2 stars. Some uniformity in max PSI would have prevented this disaster. Thanks for having replacement parts readily available. I am still VERY pleased with our Phil and Teds experience overall.
