Bought 2 tires a while ago. Finally had time to mount them. Watched a few YouTube motorcycle tire mounting videos. See people using wire ties. Theory is that inside diameter gets bigger when you tighten wire ties. My normal procedure when mounting hard to mount tires is to accidentally poke a hole in the tube. Mounting was still difficult but easier using the wire tie method and seemed less likely to accidentally poke a hole in the tube. Used a tool that I am not sure what it is? Lead and oakum tool?marty wrote:Will 2.75-16 fit both front and rear? Any problems? Tire iron suggestions? Got lots of bicycle tire experience.

My A2B Metro got a flat tire. My tube patching skills must be bad because it leaked. Have gotten many flats caused by assorted metal trash in the road. Hate pushing this bike with a flat tire.

I ride on dry roads 90%, Wet, rain, snow, ice, 9%, Mud 1%
Should I press the buy button? Any other tire suggestions? My goal is no more flat tires.
Excited to ride on a new bike trail. Town of Tonawanda Rails To Trails. Old railroad track replaced with a bike/walking trail. 4 mile straight line from my house to a new house that I bought.
