I have a Bicycle, I use it frequently and it's very helpful for me for short journey. It's save my money and time. However recently i followed that it's front tire should change. So which tire is best, let me know. It would be helpful for me.

Hi David

You need to tell us what you expect from the tire. This choice is a triangle between weight, low resistance and puncture proof,

Do you need it for fire roads, road or heavy duty MTB. and so on.

Be aware that you will not find the ultimate tire, but you might find a good one for your use case.

Cheers

Thanks 'Detlef', you made sense me, actually I'm not so aware about Bicycle. As I saw you're an expert of Bicycle. However I have change the tire, a Bicycle maker suggest me to use Petrol Ban Tire made by China. So I change it from him.

for a frequently used tire i would prefer some light, slick, smooth one.

one that does an low friction al possible.

if you are worried about punktures i would suggest stans sealant (use google). about 60ml per tire should last for a year at least.

i am using that sealant for mountainbiking and i am riding really slick tires (schwalbe sammy slick) that are rated from 2.0BRAR at 1,2BAR tubeless. no mainor loss of air about that time. at 0.9BAR tey are a bit swampish on dry ground but no worry at all.

i did about 30ml per tire to normal tube tires - less air loss about the time and no puncture.

just figure out and get a try!

Hey ''slowbeat'' yes I think stans sealant would be better. Do you have own experience?

It's a merry-go-round: the more people you ask the more different answers you get. But Petrol Ban China is a brand I have never heard about. Interesting. My mojo is that kinda unpunchable Marathon Plus series from Schwalbe.

Hi Ahahmed

Low rolling resistance was the reason to buy Schwalbe Marathon. But if your technician recommends this chinese brand, why not. I would ask for puncture resistance, durability and rolling resistance in your case.

Best regards
