    Tire mileage

    What kind of mileage can I expect from new tires?-They will be put on a Columbia cruiser bike for road use only. It is a single speed with coaster brake. The tire size is 26x2.125 and I weigh about 185-

    Thank,
    Bob

    There's no set formula. You haven't even mentioned the brand and model number of the tires you're asking about. If they have ample thread they could very well dry rot before they are actually worn out. Most tires are replaced due to punctures than actual wear anyway.

    its hard to say based off that. Some tires use a softer rubber for grip, but wears faster. Some are known to last a while, waht tires are these?

    The tires have no manufacturers name on them-They came with the 125 year Columbia anniverary bike and only say "Columbia Superb" on them. Just trying to get a general idea.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Is this the bike? ---- http://www.columbiabikes.com/about.html --- special edition "Custom Deluxe" Cruiser?

    Free advice being what it is, I'd take those tires and tubes off and put on something else. Seriously, you don't want to schmutz up those tires. Get something easily replacable like some Continental Town & Country ATB tires. They'll last forever and you won't screw up your keepers should you ever want to sell the bike or put it on display. I have a few reissue bikes myself and that's what I've done.
