looks cooler, more comfy for footjams, softer landing off drops

As it is fashionable and trendy, cant wait for 25" bars and smaller tyres come back around personally.

I dont think that small tires, like 1.75 will come back, it will porbably stay beetween 2.00 and 2.35

Well do you guys think a 2.2 hawk front and back will be good?

I have the 2.4 hawk in front and a 2.25 faf in back. Go with 2.2 front and back or 2.4 front and 2.2 back both would be sweet

^^^ true unless its for racing 2.0 will probably be the smallest freestyle tire.

Personally though for me anything from 1.95-2.25 is good i hate huge tires

other than that big tires are awesome

I used to use a mongoose with 1.95 tires and I thought that was normal. Now I have a different bike with 2.4 tires and I realize how much more comfortable it is.

Its pretty standard that fat tires dont fit in bus racks. I always have to let some air out of my tires to get my ruben to fit. I also have to turn my bars backwards so the arm can go over my wheel without hitting the peg

|

2/25/2014 11:35 AM

I have a 2.20 in front and 2.10 in back, But I'm going to try and get my old 2.30" mongoose tires back from my friend because I really liked them.

A couple pros have mentioned to me that they like the larger tires for rail rides, makes them a bit easier. Also makes landing bigger drops a bit softer.

For an average / beginner rider, a smaller tires are faster and much lighter.

the wider the tire, the more rolling resistance it has, However it offers more impact absorption than thinner tires, It also would make balancing stunts easier. They do however take up more room and could be harder to install on your bike for example in the case of the front, it could rub or come very close to rubbing on the steer-tube of the forks. depending on how your forks are. as stated above, they can also rub on grinds.Narrower tires offer less rolling resistance in the narrowest bmx sizes, their more commonly used in Racing Applications.


so Assuming we had 2 Identical bikes, with identical setup and gearing, Everything the same but the tires; The narrower tires(bike A) and the fatter tires(bike B )

Bike A: would be faster, yet harder to balance on at higher speeds, and tricks. and offer less impact resistance

Bike B: would be slower, yet easier to balance on, at higher speeds, and tricks. and offer more impact resistance

It's funny how quick things change in BMX. When I started riding just two years ago 2.25" tyres were some of the fattest out there. Now they're considered average.

2.25 is not small.

I used to ride on 1.95s. 2.25 is pretty big.

2.0 is the biggest I will go. Other than more surface area to put your foot on for footjams, fat tires really don't do much but add more weight to the bike. I will admit that I think they are cool looking, but they serve no performance advantage in my eyes. The width of the tire really won't substantially change how hard it feels when you land, that'd be tire pressure.

|

2/26/2014 8:58 AM

I remeber that my first tires were 1.95 lol. I am in 2.4 now.
