Tires

Hey I am looking for a good brand of semi-slick tires to put on my bike. I was wondering if there is a good brand that doesn't cost over $50. Thanks.

If you're paying $50 for tires, you're a ******.

The Specialized Compound Pro BMX is a good tire. It can be pumped up to 100 PSI and has little rolling resistance. It is supposed to be good for doing dirt jumps as well.

Don't speak of which you don't know of.

Don't talk about stupid, a tire under $50 each... that's any tire you can find smart stuff.

I like my Animal ASM. For any traction on dirt, a front tire with some tread would be good. This thing obviously doesn't hook up in sand or snow patches, I don't ride it in mud.

I have the tire on my x24 and it makes a good street tire. It isn't very good in snow,sand,railroad track ballast or mud. It works pretty good in hard packed dirt. I haven't used it for dirt jumping but then again I never said I did. So I do have some experience with it.

That might be the tire that came on my bike, in which case it's a pretty decent front tire, and the rear one was good but I like the ASM better because I'm brakeless, and it tears up your shoes much less since it doesn't have treads.
