Size and tread pattern of the BMX tyre
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. The width of BMX tyres is typically between 1’’ and 2.4’’. The size of the BMX tube is listed in the product description. Most of the 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.
