THE BMX TIRE 101

For today’s Tech Thursday we cover everything you need to know about BMX Tires in this weeks BMX Tire 101!

The 4 main components of a tire are The Tread, The Sidewall, The Body and the bead. The tire bead can either be steal or kevlar (non folding vs folding tires), and the sidewall and tread are the main things that differentiate the vast majority of tires. Whether its a dirt, street, park, vert or flatland tire they can all be used on any terrain, but they all do excel at one certain area.

For this particular video we looked at the Fit FAF, Cult Vans, Cult AK, BSD Alex “Donnasqueak” Donnachie, Stranger Ballast, Primo Steve Churchil, KHE MAC 2, and Merritt Option tires.

Hope you enjoyed this video!

matthew ramirez says:

thanks never knew that much about the tires they had, so i got my first bike from toys r us and my tire from the stock bike was wasted so i went to a bike shop and saw the merrit option tire and they told me it was a big tire but i didn’t really care about how big the tire was i just loved the color, tbh i had no idea what i was doing, but i decided to go down a hill to try out the new tire so i started swerving left to right and i slid into the back of someone’s car and he said you alright i know you fucked up my car a little but as long as you ok it’s alright.

Big Steve says:

Hey Alfredo I have the Cult Dehart Slicks and I dont think they have any Micro Knurling but they do Chirp ALOT !! I dont think it is the Micro Knurling that makes it Squeak or Chirp …

Codi Young says:

Got a set of those Merritt option tires and the bead ripped after only putting around 50 psi. Is there any way I can fix it without buying a new set? They haven’t even seen pavement yet. Still brand new and the bead ripped

Ethan Moore says:

I’m still riding the tyres my bike originally came with so I want to buy some new ones, does it matter how wide they are(for example my tire says 20″x2.30 on the front and 20″2.20 on the back) so can I buy 2.35 or 2.4 for the front and back. or do they have to be the same width as the ones my bike came with?
