Learn More About Bike Tires
Take your ride to the next level with the right bike tire.
Think of the terrain of your ride: Are you cruising down paved streets or taking on an off-road ride? Look for tires that fit your bike and its journey. Choose bike tires designed at the appropriate pressure and traction level.
Select tires designed to match road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid and comfort bikes as well as BMX. Find a variety of the standard 26-inch bike wheels often employed on mountain bikes, or the 700c wheel commonly found on road bicycles. Shop for tires ranging in size from 20 inches to 29 inches.
- BMX tires are designed smaller than their mountain bike or road bike counterparts, making them easier to maneuver while performing tricks and stunts.
- Mountain tires are designed with a wide build for ample shock absorption as well as deep treads that provide traction of obstacles you encounter along the trek. Hybrid bikes often use the standard 26-inch wheel found on mountain bikes.
- Road tires are high-pressured, narrow and thin in build, providing agility and a smooth ride over paved surfaces.
Expect quality tires from top brands like Kenda®, Diamondback® and Avenir®.
