These are for 20-inch wheel fat bikes, akin to the rims found on a retro automobile. The width is 4 inches. They do not have as much tread as the typical bobbly tyres found on many mainstream automotive vehicles. Specifically engineered for road use, they give your vehicle, or bike in this instance, a smooth drive. You can go off-road, but the thinner tread means you are more susceptible to punctures, so make sure you conduct regular maintenance and put some tyre liners in your wheel when you install them. It’s a little like ensuring your car has adequate tire pressure. You can get these liners from us too.

With them having thinner tread, there is less rolling resistance, which obviously affects the speed of your drive in the same way it would in a conventional vehicle. It also affects your range if you are using an e-bike. The difference isn’t significant enough to notice, but these are just different options. Plus, they make your bike resemble a retro automobile, with an aesthetic that’s kick-ass and cool, particularly the white sidewall. If you mainly ride on the road fast, then you should get some. If you prefer off-road adventures, stick to the bobbly tyres. They are made for this kind of terrain. White wall tyres are not. They are perfect for your bike if you want a fast or slow yet stylish ride.

In fact, whitewall tyres wouldn’t look out of place on a vintage car-style wheels vehicle.

The wheel size is crucial, mirroring the importance of choosing the correct tire size for an automobile, so please double-check this before you order.
