need help with tire size for trainer tire
Want to buy a trainer tire, but they seem to only come in 700x23.
I have a hybrid and currently have a 700x40 tire
The rim says: ssw700 and is also marked: 27 * 622
Can anyone tell me if I can get a trainer tire or recommend something that would work?
Just buy a couple cheap tires of the size you like.
+1 "Trainer Tires" are not anything special and a cheap tire of the right size will work just as well as long as it has no to very little tread. You do not want a heavy tread or, worse, a knobby. Adjust the roller on your trainer so the tire just doesn't slip under load but no tighter. What ruins tires on a trainer is too much or too little tension.
