What Do You Generally Consider When Choosing Tires

The tire is the most important part of the bicycle, but it is also a vulnerable part that everyone often needs to consider replacing. In the event of a tire blowout, riding wear or long-term aging, we all need to replace a brand new tire. But when we choose tires, in addition to considering the brand and model of tires, what other aspects do you consider? Welcome to leave a message.

If it says Schwalbe on the sidewall, that's good enough for me. Schwalbe Big Apples, Marathons, Big Bens are tires I'd have no problem buying. I'm OK with Kenda and Vee tire too. Yes, I have limited viewpoints.

I don't care about tubeless or inserts.

Weight, rolling resistance, profile, quality, speed, tubeless, price, in that order

I've always had the best luck with round ones.

I'm usually the fatter tire as I like the capacity of riding in all terrain. They also perform fine on pavement!

"Cost"



I ride light gravel and asphalt. The two tires I have found most worth the money have been Continental Ride Tour and Kenda 184...
