    need a rear tire recommendation for my fixie

    hey. so i bought a pair of cheng shin gum-wall tires (700c x 25) for a fairly cheap price and after less than a week...i already have skid patches down to the "meshing". i understand that i'm new to fixies so i'm excessively skidding to get used to the fixed gear, but i'm pretty sure this tire should last longer than this. does anyone have a good recommendation for a rear tire? not some billion-dollar continental tire preferably

    New tire always goes to the front, put your front tire to the rear and put the new one on the front.

    Poor rims. They did not die a quick, painless death.

    You've got a front brake, use it.
