Hard to find tire

Bike Tires Direct was one of only a couple sources that carried this 20 x 1.5 inch tire for my folding bike and their price was by far the lowest. Works great - so far so good.

Good solid tire for our trikes

The tires were pretty easy to install on our Delta trikes. They have a good easy roll to them with very little resistance, but haven't really been able to get out on a long ride to see how they will hold up to regular wear & tear. So far I'm pretty happy with my purchase. BikeTires Direct has the best prices I've found on the net so it was a pretty good deal all around since I need three of these tires for each of our trikes.

Perfect for Bike-E Rear

Looking to restore that Bike-E recumbent? This is the size you need for the rear wheel. White letter tires look better than the white or gumwall as they give it a more contemporary appearance. Rides well and smooth with good traction. I went with a size narrower than stock for a little more speed. Just as comfortable as before so good choice.

Not a 20in tire!

These are so bad. They have 20inch written on the packaging and the tire and even the kenda tubes, but they are definitely NOT 20 inches diameter. More like 18. Don't waste your time or money.

BikeTiresDirect.com Comments
You are probably looking for an ISO 451 size tire, which is also labeled as a 20 inch tire. These are not the same size. Please call our customer service agents if you are not sure which size you are looking for and we can assist you.

fits perfect on my ElliptiGo bike

Unfortunately picked up a nail on ride today, tire only on for a couple hundred miles and the sidewall had a tear by the time I walked the elliptiGo bike home...but it IS heavy...about 42 lbs.

It's a very good tire. I get these for my recumbent. Have been using them for years. Great price and good puncture protection.

Meh...

This one came as stock on the front wheel of my new Sun recumbent. After less than a year, it developed an ominous bulge, which told me blow out was imminent. The 26 version on the rear did not do this. But neither are what I'd call particularly flat resistant or durable, both succumbed to the dreaded goat head several times.

I suggest you FIND the extra money for one of the Schwalbe Marathon variants...you'll save money AND trouble over the long run.

I got a flat the second day of use

Because you did not have the marathon greengaurds I wanted at the time, you recommended the kwest tire temporarily. it only lasted 2 days before I got a flat.

Perfect replacement tire for my Bigha recumbent bicycle!

It is hard to find suitable tires for my Bigha recumbent bicycle and the first and only place I go to is BTD. These tires are the same ones as were originally on my bike and I cannot find them elsewhere. They wear great - I put thousands of miles on each set and the treads are still good. I've run over sharp objects and the tires get gouged, but the tire stays strong and reliable.

Hot Wheels

I have a 3 wheel recumbent road tricycle. This is my second purchase of the tires, the first set lasted over 3500 miles, prior to these tires I tried several different brands , I was lucky if they lasted more than 500 miles. They were priced 80 to 100% higher than these Kenda's. I ride 5 days a week in my Southern California community. For a recreational biker these tires pound for pound and dollar for dollar the most reliable performance of any tire I have ever used

Workhorse tire

I have been using this tire for commuting and touring on a single bike for years, averaging about 3000 miles per tire. I'm a somewhat heavy guy riding a cycle path that is prone to sharp bumps, so they have served well. They are stiff and therefore have a harsher ride and are probably less efficient.

Be aware that the other reviewer's bike is a tandem. Like the other reviewer, we tried to use them on a recumbent tandem, but they only lasted about 1500 miles before the cord started to distort. IMHO, this is not a suitable tire for the double load of a touring tandem. But it's hard to tell, since they don't publish weight limits.
