    Good Sources for Small Tires?

    I'm talking 12", 14", 16" and 18". I don't completely like the cheap tires I see in the bike shops, most are low pressure knobbies instead of road tires, and I refuse to go to WalMart...

    I see a lot of better smaller tires on jogging strollers these days. Since I don't have kids, I have no idea where these come from, or if the shops that sell them have good selections of tires. Anyone here have any experience with this?

    My other idea is a shop that specializes in recumbents.

    Any other suggestions?

    I would see if gaerlan can get you something .I checked with schwalbe at the chicago bike show and in 14 inch all they make are tires rated to 45 psi .You should be able to get some pretty good tires in 16 inch though .I have a bike with 14 inch tires and the best i was able to get was 55 psi. I would not even bother with a bike with 12 inch tires.i have looked at the 12 inch tires on strollers at rei and they are only rated to 35 psi.What will you use the tires for?

    Mostly minibikes for ZooBombing. But I've got two nicer Raleighs that take 16" tires.

    You might want to go with solid tubes.

    Solid tires? I don't think so! I'm just looking for BMX-quality tires (more or less) in odd small sizes, and I seem to see much better tires on jogging strollers these days than on kids' bikes.
