How to Choose the Right Tyres for Your Bike

If there's anything you need to choose right when your bike needs some touch-up, it's the tyres. You'll need one as good as, or even better, than the original tyres.

But then, choosing the right tyres for your bike may not be easy since there are varieties of bike tyres. But here, you'll learn a quick way to make the right choice of tyres for your bike.

Choosing the Right Tyres For Your Bike

To ensure you're making the best choice of tyres for your bike, here are factors to consider:

#1. Tyre Size

Tyre sizes differ depending on the type of bike. And, you need to be sure of the size of your bike's tyre to avoid a smaller or bigger tyre. Every Positz bike tyre comes with a size written right beside it. Check the side of the tyre for something like 27.5 × 2.8inch.

This simply means that your bike tyre is 27.5 inches in diameter and 2.8 in width. Although, if you own a road bike the diameter is usually 700. The trick is to check if the size of the tyre corresponds with the size of the old tyres.

#2. Tire Tread

Although seemingly negligible, the tyre tread is a very important make-up of a tyre. The tire tread gives your bike a firm grip on the road to enable proper traction, thereby checking accidents. Depending on the type of bike you own, you should choose the right tyre tread.

Mountain bikes have a distinct type of tyre, because they'll need to climb mountains. Road bike tyres come with different tyre treads. However, this is not always a problem; the Positz vendor will explain the unique feature of each tread type to help you choose the right one.

#3. Tube or Tubeless

Almost everyone is used to tube tyres. However, technology is changing the world and bike parts are not left out. Tubeless tyres do not need tubes between the tyre and the wheel rims. The key advantage of this innovation is that it resists the effect of puncture.

In case of a puncture, the valve remains intact and the tyre doesn't collapse due to air loss. However, for a bike with a spoked wheel rim, a tube tyre may be better because of the spoke anchor points. Whichever be your choice, Positz offers varieties of tyres and quality tubes to suit your needs.
