Tires for what bike???


Have not see these before and don't think they are the "standard" 20" size.

Anyone know if they had a specific application?

Which version of the 20" sizes do you consider the "standard"? The displayed tire has what I consider to be about the most common (at least here in the USA) size, 406mm bead seat diameter. It is the others (451mm, 440mm, 438mm, 432mm, 428mm, 419mm and 400mm as listed in Southerland's manual) that are usually thought of as being the odd ones. Note how I don't reference the labeled "width". The labeled width and the mounted on your rim and inflated to your pressure width can often be somewhat different independent of the tire's diameter.

It's a size you find for BMX and some recumbents. Whether it's a popular standard I don't know.

It's also used on some Bike Friday folding bikes. Other of their models use ISO 451 rims.

Sorry for delay in replying.....parkinsons bad last couple days and i couldn't keyboard.

Tires just seemed different somehow. Don't have any experience with 20" size and those I've seen were much wider. Suspect they maybe for folder as mentioned above.

I have the same tire (model and size) on the front wheel of two of my RANS recumbent bikes. One of the bikes is a tandem. Not an unusual size for recumbents.
Both fatter and skinnier 406 tires are available.
