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!

Great video! Why are 24inch tire so hard to find? Thanks!
Hey you sound like shit
how do i buy tires? back tire 2.3 front tire 2.4? or back and front 2.4.
there are both lighter tires and tires with higher psi ratings.
khe just did it first.
they are also like the nicest weight weenie tire if you have money to spend.
super grippy, fast rolling, because of how thin they are they have some give, at like 90psi they are perfect in the front. 110 in the rear.
but dirt tires are where its at. get one with a smooth center line for street and just enough traction for dirt, the side knobs help for dirt, and can help for park with foot jams. they last longer. the extra side knobs can also protect your sidewalls during grinds.
personally used to ride a we the people gripping ot feelin folding tire(now they only have wire beads) and an eclat command tire in the front. the aitken tire is a good alternative.
the old shadow tires, in the folding option were a favorite rear tire.
rocking a good dirt/park tire up front can be helpful if you ever randomly decide to go dirt jumping.
i find slicks only really come in handy if you run really high tire pressure and ride lots of concrete parks.
I hate running over heroin needles
One year to the clip today! Thanks and GZ! 🙂
Ugly thin pedo
I need to glue some rubber tire treads onto my electric skateboard tires.
Which do you recommend?
Awesome video just wish the audio didn’t echo so much
Quick question idk how fast youre going to get this but anyways, I put my back tire on backwards and didnt realize it until the chain was full on. Is it something I really need to worry about a whole lot or do you think itll be fine. I’m not a serious rider I just like to ride it to and from work and sometimes to the liquor store and what not, do a few gap and mannies or whatever but i dont really do like spin tricks since i cant fakie for the life of me
So, what’s the best street tyres ?
You sound like shit
Do i need a wider frame for a wider tire? I’m currently running 2.25" but my tire has a hole so I decided to upgrade to 2.35"
Damn, great info, learning a crap load about bmx, just getting into it.
my left ear really enjoyed this video!
Man… I’ve been out of the scene for ages and decided to come back… So confused, Are we really getting hung up on tire squeaks and Instagram followers?
Damn this bike shop I got my BMX from HMU with the Kevlar tires 4 the low. Just popped it today sadly. Bad idea to street ride a track tire.
I got maxxis worm ring tires they are my fav tires so far

Guys I am currently using a 20*2.30 tire but would a 20*2.40 fit on my rims?
I like the Odyssey Path Pro 2.4" 100 psi tires. Well made.
Cool video! I love the AK tire! Which tire is at least 2.4 and the most difficult to puncture while riding?
HOW TO FIX METAL BEAD IN BMX TIRE 101!!
how do you know which tires are big tires to make your wheel look big? im in the market but idk how to choose or how to look for it like what detail i look for
I have 2.40 85-120 psi tire
Is it okay of i run on my mongoose l40 145 psi in the back???
because its said 40 psi max. but i run in the front 75 psi so is okay?
I bought my bike with 2.3 inch wide tires on it. Am i able to put 2.4 inch tires on it ?
Why do people ride 2.4" tires in back or in general? If I understood correctly thick tires bring more benefits, so yeah. I haven’t ridden a tire wider than 2.25" so I dunno how it feels, I think I’ll stay with about 1.9 in back and 2.2 in front.
Quit fucking around ima kms
I’ve always run more narrow in the back than the front
Does the Haro la Mesa one of the more cherpy tires
