Tire Finder

Welcome to our tire finder. Use this page to find the best tires for your bicycle, tricycle, wheelchair, stroller, or cart. If you want to search for all tires available in a specific size, you can just type the size in the search box above. For example, 700Cx25 or 700x25. If you know the ISO size, this is the most accurate way to indicate the size. For example, 700Cx25 is 25-622.

Select Wheel Size

The wheel rim size is the critical size dimension for a tire. Bicycle wheels can be used with a fairly wide range of tire widths, but the wheel rim size must be correct in order for the tire to seat on the rim correctly.

The wheel rim size for the tire refers to the diameter of the tire at the point at which the tire contacts the wheel rim. This is also called the bead-seat diameter. This is usually expressed in millimeters, but most sizes have a common name that is expressed in inches. Unfortunately, the common name size for the tire is the typical outside diameter of the tire, not the wheel rim size. For example, the standard 26" mountain bike tire has a wheel rim size of 559mm, or 22 inches. Please refer to the information below to help determine your tire size.
