Bike Tires & Tubes
You replace old tires are your car when they've worn out. Well, the same thing applies to your bike tires and tubes. Fortunately, you have numerous options open to you. Of course, you need to make sure they fit correctly. But you can also use the opportunity to upgrade your ride.
Average Lifespan for Bike Tires
Mileage determines the lifespan of bike tires and tubes. Not surprisingly, the more you ride, the more your tires wear.
Mountain bikes trail tires last from 3,000 to 8,000 miles. Other bike tire types, however, lack that longevity. For example, road bike tires last from 1,000 to 3,000 miles. Touring tires last as far as 4,000 miles. Finally, racing tires enjoy the shortest life span -- generally only 1,000 miles.
When moving to a new set of tires and tubes, you must keep some key points in mind:
- Make sure you select the correct tire size
- Select the right tire width for your bike
- Find the tread pattern that works best for you
- Select the proper tube and valve size

Comments from Our Customers
The owners are wonderful and run the best bike shop around. The staff is top notch and always does a great job. Just got a great tune up, and while I made no request about when I could get the bike back, the turn around was super quick so I had it to ride on the 4th of July. Much appreciated!
