They suck. It feels like you have 30 PSI in your tires.

DO NOT PUT SOLID TUBES IN YOUR BIKE. They will make ur wheels easier to bend, they are heavy, and just lame. Why are u gettin so many flats? check inside your tire, and on ur rim to see if its punctering it anywhere. I rarley get flats. And im running just standerd tubes. If anything just get slime. If your blowing out your tubes....u got somthing else wrong then just them blowing out.

ive checked the tire and the rim. i actually have two rimstrips on my back rim.

i havent really been puncturung the tubes, they have been ripping at the seams.

should i just raise the psi? i run about 50-55 now.

possibly. where a re u gettin ur tubes at? Maybe try somewhere else. I run 100 psi usally. if the tires are to soft they can blow out or get pinch flats alot easier. try bumping it up to about 80 if ur tires can handle that.

im to fat to run that low of pressure. i weigh 250, so 100 psi keeps them from being to squishy..like my gut.

smash up some chalk and put it in your tire between the tire and the tube
As stupid as it sounds it has worked so well for me ( never had a flat beside my fat friend casing, and some dude at the skatepark that got a flat in 30 seconds )

lol schwinn and walmart tubes are all i ride!! and i rarely get flats. try putting a little baby powder inside the tire and then pump the tire to at least 80psi. lemme know how it works.



EDIT: the tubes are flat for shipping. put a tiny bit of air in the tube before putting it on the tire. its possible you twisted the tube if you put it in flat like that.

helps against pinch flats i guess. it decreases the amount of frictio, that way the tube doesnt tear against the tire.
