Closeup of a tire’s siping and tread patterns.

Where will you ride?

Bike tires are available in a variety of sizes to fit different bike wheels, with a variety of different tread patterns designed for specific terrain. Whereas tires made for the road are often smoother and narrower to roll fast, tires made for the trail are wider and have a heftier tread pattern for more traction. As you’re searching for the best tires for your bike, the first thing to consider is where you’ll ride.

Open road

Tires for the open road are generally smoother, lighter, and roll faster. If you have a road, fitness, or commuter bike and spend most of your time on pavement, this is a good place to start. These tires balance puncture protection and weight, and have varying degrees of tread.

Dirt trails

If you’re riding trails, mountain bike tires are for you. More tread means more traction, but tires with a lighter tread generally roll faster and weigh less.

Gravel roads, paths, and cyclocross

Like road tires, these are designed to be lightweight and roll fast — but they also have additional tread for better traction. Tires with more tread will give you more grip, and smoother tires will roll faster.

Our kids’ bike tires are built to stand up to any adventure. But kids’ bikes come in a variety of wheel sizes, so be sure to choose a tire that fits the wheel!
