I know i could post this in a different section, but i feel like i get better advice from my fellow recumbent riders and this is semi recumbent related. Sometime in the next few months I will need to change out my tires. Currently I have a 26x1.5 armadillo tire on the back and a primo 20x1.35 on the front. This is working ok now and I would like to keep the tires sizes the same when i get new ones (and this time the same brand also...i got this used). The rims are sun rims AT 18. I'm sure since im running these tires now with no problems (even though im sure these werent the stock tires) that it would be safe to say i could buy the same sizes again. Just to make sure before i shell out some money...how do i tell the rim size? or do i simply have to take the tire off and measure the rim?
also is there a brand someone would suggest for the new tires? and maybe suggest a size if different from what im using. Mostly city riding...some paved/lite dirt bike paths. If it matters i ride about 200 miles a month....might be more soon if i decide to go car free.
kevlar or not?
Thanks so much in advance also i got my computer/lights/mirror situation all worked out and its working great (posted a thread a few weeks ago) And i need a picture already so i can add it to the main thread
