Trying to get a Fit Wifi from my local shop, along with a couple other parts, I am mainly asking about tires, my local carries a nice selection and it is kind of hard to choose

They have these tires, and in the sizes I'd want them in.

Fit FAF Tires (2.10, 2.30, 2.40... 2.30 available in folding versions)
Odyssey Hawk P-Lyte Tires (2.20 and 2.40)
Primo V-Monster Tires (2.25... I believe so)
Odyssey Aitken K-Lyte Tanwall Tires (2.25)
Tioga Powerblock S-Spec Tires (from 1.60, 1.75, 1.95, and 2.10)
Cult Vans Tires (2.35)

they have a few others, just cannot think of them off the top of my head.

Anyway it seems like a nice selection, hard to choose.


Welp, broke past 1000... yeeeee

Out of those i'd choose the Aitkens (because they're the only ones i have personal experience with) but all of them are good tires from i've heard and read

Kink lyras! They are amazing! They will never give u a flat! And they are super grippy. and if u want to run skinnier tires u should get the kink vela tire is the same tire was the kink lyra but it is skinnier.


Its a skatepark not a playground.

some ...more

I run folding FAFs and theyre just the same as regulars. Still the best tires ive ever rode.

My experience with FAFs is this..

2.25 Front lasts over a year and a half
2.25 Rear lasts about a half year
2.1,2.3,2.4 Rear last 3-4 months

Get the FAFs, Hawks, Or Aitkens. I wouldn't recommend the other ones.
