Riders choose BMX tires depending on the type and location of riding. Many people put different types of tires on the front and rear wheels to better control the bike. The front tire usually has more notches; this helps when performing tricks. The rear tire is rather smooth for better coasting.
Usually, riders use BMX tires that have a width of 2.2 inches. But the latest trend is increasing the width of the wheel. Oftentimes, you can find tires with a width of 2.4 inches. The composition of the rubber also matters. Soft materials improve grip, but worsen coasting. That's why manufacturers often combine their compounds. They make the sides of soft rubber, while the central part of the BMX tread of hard rubber. We recommend installing inner tubes in proportion to the width of the tire.
