I've been using the Coker tires, and the only problem I've had is that they wear out fairly quickly. My last rear tire probably lasted about 3000 miles. The front probably has triple that.

Since I only ride it maybe 1000 miles per year, this is more of an annoyance than a financial hardship. But if I was putting a lot more miles on it...

Unfortunately, the choices are limited, since there is limited demand for this size/profile/look. Maybe others have found better choices?


Most of the modern tires I have seen online are low profile and wouldn't work well with the KJ footboards. Some have given negative feedback on the Cooker tires. Mine will be ridden and not shown so I want to put a decent enough tire on it. What does everyone use? The only others I have found online are Shinko.
