JoshKramer Definitely a risk and somewhat varies from scooter to scooter. Some seem very prone to getting pinch flats (inner tube gets pinched against the rim and tears).
A lot of the time you can just slime the tires and if you get a puncture and not have to remove/replace the inner tube. Tire slime won’t work if you get a pinch flat.
Changing tires/tubes is definitely a bit of work and more difficult than on a bicycle.
Overall, I think pneumatic tires are worth it, especially tubeless pneumatic tires which tend to be less flat prone and slime nearly always works for fixing punctures. Downside is that they are really hard to change compared to pneumatic tubed tires.
We wrote an e-scooter tire guide a while back that is definitely worth taking a look at if you want to learn more.
