Split rims are a style of air tire wheels that trade weight for convenience. They are the standard when it comes to air-tired scooters.

Benefits

It is quite simple to install a new tire or remove an old tire from these rims. They separate in order to go "around" the tire for you. Single piece rims require a machine or a heck of a lot of muscle in order to replace a tire.

Drawbacks

Because these rims must reconnect with extra hardware (bolts), they are more heavy than one piece rims.
