Wheelchair Tire Size

I am an active wheelchair user, who is a paraplegic for the past 22 years.  I have always used 24" tires, but I'm thinking of going up to 25".  Any thoughts on which size is better?

    I think it depends on the person. If you're used to 24 inches then there must be a good reason to switch to 25 inches. I hope whatever you do it results in more comfort, because you deserve it  :) A friend of mine from https://www.bestchoiceroofingservices.com/ got a temporary 25 inch wheelchair after falling off a roof during roofing services and he said it was great. Arm length might be another factor.
