Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: What is the difference between tubeless and tube-type tires?
A: Tubeless tires don't have an inner tube, and instead rely on an airtight seal between the tire and rim to hold the air. Tube-type tires, on the other hand, have an inner tube that holds the air. Tubeless tires are generally lighter and offer better puncture resistance, while tube-type tires are generally cheaper and easier to repair.
Q: How do I know which size of tire to choose for my bicycle?
A: The size of tire you need depends on the size of your bike's wheels. The size is typically printed on the sidewall of the tire, and is usually a series of numbers and letters. You can also check your bike's owner's manual or consult a bike shop for guidance.
Q: What kind of tire is best for mountain biking?
A: Mountain bike tires come in a variety of sizes and tread patterns, depending on the type of riding you'll be doing. For most mountain biking, a tire with a knobby tread pattern and a width of at least 2.2 inches is recommended.
Q: How often should I replace my bike tires?
A: The lifespan of a bike tire depends on a number of factors, including the type of tire, the conditions you ride in, and how often you ride. As a general rule, it's recommended that you replace your tires every 2,000-3,000 miles or if you notice any signs of wear or damage, such as cracks or cuts in the sidewall.
Q: Can I mix and match different brands of tires and tubes?
A: It's generally not recommended to mix and match different brands of tires and tubes, as they may not be designed to work together properly. It's best to use tires and tubes from the same brand and product line.
Q: How do I choose the right tire pressure for my bike?
A: The right tire pressure depends on a number of factors, including your weight, the type of bike you have, and the conditions you'll be riding in. As a general rule, most road bike tires should be inflated to between 80-120 psi, while mountain bike tires should be inflated to between 30-50 psi. Check the sidewall of your tire for the recommended pressure range.
Q: How do I repair a flat tire?
A: To repair a flat tire, you'll need to remove the tire from the rim and patch or replace the inner tube. You'll also need a set of tire levers, a pump, and a patch kit or a spare inner tube. If you're not comfortable doing this yourself, take your bike to a bike shop for repairs.
Q: What is the warranty on your bike tires?
A: The warranty on our bike tires varies depending on the product line and model. Please refer to the product page on our website for specific warranty information.
