    24 inch studded tire

    Tried to search for the answer on Internet but could not find the answer.

    This is the first commuting season for my wife. 8 mile round trip commute in Columbus, Ohio, USA.

    She has one of the old Rayleigh Road bikes
    Rim Size: 24 * 1 1/4

    I was trying to find studded tires for her. The closest I could find was 24*1.75 from Schwalbe (http://www.schwalbetires.com/node/1788). I have commuted for only 2 seasons, so I dont have much idea either. Will the tire fit on this rim size? The brakes on the bike are side-pull caliper.

    Thanks for helping!!!

    Another option could be the Nokian Mount And Ground W144, they make it in 24 x 1,9. Don't know how well that is available to you locally. Winter tyres are typically wide, does the bike have enough clearance? You could guesstimate something by measuring the existing tire width, and how much space there is now.
    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    The ISO size is 32-547. Looks like it is impossible to find studded tires with diameter 547.

    Ah, OK.

    24"is 507 rim size. I've never heard of 547. Is that some kind of old french size?

    The current tire on the rim says 32 547 (24 * 1 1/4). Shekdon Brown says that this size is used for "British or Schwinn Juvenile" bikes (http://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html)

    Please update if you find anything- I'm in the same situation as your wife. 24" wheels are apparently a big PITA. I wonder if they make studded wheelchair tires? A lot of those are 24"

    You can DIY studded tyres. It helps to have an original tyre with separate knobbles each large enough to accept a screw. If you cant get knobbly tyres, there is probably a way to fit studs if you are creative.
    OR change the rim/wheel to a more common kids 24" MTB wheels size.
