Great tires for urban environments when installed on my mountain bike.

My mountain bike has always had knobby tires on it. After some research, I decided to treat myself to a set of these knob-less tires since I seldom go off road with my bike. Minimal rolling resistance, good looks and above all, they were a value at only 32 dollars each with free shipping. At 2.5" wide, my bike now looks almost like a "fat tire bike" which seems to be the trend now. I would not only recommend these tires to anyone, I would also buy them again.

Comfortable ride, transformed my 90's mountain bike to a multi-surface cruiser!

I'm loving these tires, a great way to breath new life into your 26" 90's mountain bikes. With these tires, my old Diamondback is my grab-&-go bike. Smooth riding on asphalt and plenty of cushion on gravel paths and through the woods.

A few notes: they are heavy tires, and I can feel it on climbs.

They are really wide, so make sure you have plenty of clearance

And since they're so wide, they definitely need the bigger tubes that aren't typically stocked at big-box stores.

Perfect fit on my beach cruiser

I was looking for the widest tire I could fit on my beach cruiser and this tire is just right at 2.5 inches wide, a little wider than the stock tires. The tread feels smooth but very 'grippy' on the street and also works great in hard packed beach sand. I run them at 40psi and the ride is very comfortable.

No more flat tires

My daughter was popping tubes everyday on her 26� Haro downtown. I bought these tires from bike tires direct 3 months ago and haven�t replaced or repaired a tube since then. I highly recommend this tire and doing business with bike tires direct. I�m all the way across the country in New Jersey and they shipped the tires to me in a few days..????

These are huge! i love them!

I put these on an old 26 inch mt bike. They reasonable well. They are huge, steering geometry is a little bit affected due to size but overall better than the knobbies they replaced.

Nice riding tire good for training rides on bike paths or city streets.

Overall a very good tire if you are looking to replace your knobbies with a durable, smooth rolling tire. I put a pair of Hookworms on my old GT Timberline mountain bike so I could ride the many miles of concrete bike paths in my area. The Hookworms perform well for this purpose. Granted they are heavy, so don't expect the snappy feel of a high pressure, skinny tire, but for logging miles and burning calories they are great. Be sure to run a 2.50 wide tube.

Great tires.

I bought these tires to put on an ebike project and I love them. They hold the road fine at 40mph and I have no worries about riding in the rain. I already bought another pair for my next project. I believe these tires are well worth the price. Obviously I would not recommend them for off road use.

Great street tires

Very grippy and durable, not the lightest but if you want to bomb around the streets and some hard pack these are the tires to get. The extra volume helps cushion out some of the bumps too.

Commute on these and you'll be flat free for quite some time - solid construction and full wrap of tread makes these great for urban shredding too!

I should have ordered larger tubes to go with these tires, I can't find any locally, but so far the skinny tubes are working fine, but that was my fault !
