406 mm tires have wide availability and very great selection of tires. 451mm tires are less widely available with less selection.In my opinion 406mm tires ride better than 305 0r 349 mm tires and it is easier to get good gearing with them.If you want the definitive answer from Dahon go to Dahon forums and ask a Dahon rep.

Just about anywhere.

You can order 406 mm rims just about anywhere. 406 mm is the standard BMX tire size. Or you can go to Gaerlan Bicycles.
