BMX bike tyres: Gets you riding
A Solid pair of BMX bike tyres is important for your experience when you go riding. A solid pair of BMX bicycle tyres gives you the self-confidence to do tricks that evolve you as a rider because you don’t have to worry about whether your BMX bike tyres hold up to the beating.
BMX bike tyres made for BMX freestyle disciplines such as flatland and street BMX are designed to be both durable and give you great stability when you’re doing tricks on a level, clean ground.
How to choose the right size
BMX bicycle tyres and wheels for Freestyle BMX bikes are available in sizes 16’’ to 20’’.
However, 20’’ is the most common size, and preferred by most riders. If you’re a kid under the age of 12, it might be an idea to go for a smaller pair of BMX bicycle tyres.
The width of BMX bicycle tyres is typically between 1’’ and 2.4’’. The size of the BMX bike inner tube is listed in the product description. Most of the BMX bike tubes fit all tyre widths.
The tread pattern of the tyres varies from model to model. BMX tyres with much tread pattern provide a good grip. Less tread pattern provides less resistance, and thus a faster bike. Most Freestyle BMX bikes have wide tyres with much tread pattern to secure a great grip.
So how much air should I put in my BMX tyres? - You might ask yourself. We recommend that you look at the recommended PSI for your BMX bike tyres, which in most cases can be found on the side of the wheel.
