Buyer's Guide: 27.5 Mountain Bike Tires

The 27.5 Mountain Bike Tires Buying Guide

You would think that after a mountain bike has been bought and the wheels have been put on, the next step would be to head out and buy the appropriate tires for your new bike. However, buying your tires should not be done immediately. There are a few things you should consider first, and then consider the quality of tires before you decide which ones to buy. Here's a helpful bike and tire buying guide:

- Know what kind of riding you will be doing when you buy tires. If you're going to go on dirt roads or rocky trails where there are thorns and rocks, then you will need a different tire than if you're going on smooth flat streets. Read up on all kinds of trails before buying your tires so you get the right ones for the job.

- Go to a shop and test out the tires that you like. Make sure they fit your bike properly and that they do not feel heavy when you push them around. Don't let salespeople push you into purchasing tires that you will not have the patience or ability to handle. Take your time when choosing, and remember that tires do wear out. Test the tread on both the front and rear tires, and if you are getting any squeaks in the tire, then it is time to replace them.

- Check the tread of both the front and back tires. The tread should have good traction. If it begins to give way under pressure, then it is time to replace it. Also, check for air pressure in both the tire and the air tank. Make sure that the tires have adequate air. This will ensure that your bike has the correct suspension and that you have the necessary traction in all riding situations.

- When changing a tire, always start with the front tire. Make sure that the tire does not get a lot of air before it snaps out of the rim. Always face the tire with the non-goofiest eye and start the change from the side that does not have a lot of snow. Do not rely on the cleats for traction in this situation.

- Be sure that the tire is attached to the frame correctly. The tire may not be sitting flat yet. It may be sitting on the rim. Be sure that both of these are true before starting the change. You do not want to be changing a tire while someone is standing in front of you!

- Do not cut the nuts before you remove them. A lot of people do just this and then notice that the tire does not work right. The reason that you need to make sure that the nuts are loose is so that you can pull them out without too much struggle. Sometimes, they can become so wrapped that they are really difficult to pull out. Another thing you will want to make sure of is that the nuts are tightened properly. Check to make sure that the tighten nut has not loosened before you start removing the nuts.

- Tighten the nuts all the way down before you start the process. This will ensure that you do not have to struggle as you change a tire. Sometimes, you might have to make sure that they are tight enough to hold the tire in place. Make sure that you have a reliable friend or mechanic to help you change your tire, or you may find yourself doing this on your own!
