    The Tyre (Tire) Thread

    The topic of tyre swapping and alternatives comes up more frequently these days. So I cut this from another thread. It's a tiny bit messy, but a lot of questions are answered by the data. Here's what my research has pulled up. Most of us know by now that bicycle tyres/tires are specified by the total diameter of the tyre, not the rim it fits on, as per the rest of the tyre world. So for example a 14" EUC actually has a 10" rim. However things get complicated with machines like the Gotway Nikola which is a 17" wheel, not because the rim is bigger, but because the tyre on it is actually just a fat 16" that measures 17" across. To be clear, it still fits on a standard 16" EUC rim (except maybe the rime is thicker from left to right, I don't know, Ecodrift measured the motor windings of the Nikola at 3cm, but I just measured the motor winding on my 3 year old KS14C. Guess what! 3cm. But I have it on good authority the manufacturers do not has the same motor suppliers) Right, so, here's the skinny: Most tyres have the actual rim size and width (distance between the rims across the tyre from side to side, often wider than the rim) in mm, stamped on the sidewall So: If you want a tyre for your 14" wheel look for a tyre with yy-254 where "yy" equals the width (yy details below) e.g.47-254, 57-354, 64-354, 76-254 and 254 = a 10" rim If you want a tyre for your 16" wheel look for a tyre with yy-305 e.g. 57-305, 64-305, 76-305. 305 = a 12"rim If you want a tyre for your 18" wheel look for a tyre with yy-355 e.g. 64-355, 76-355. 355 = a 14" rim If you want a tyre for your 22" wheel look for a tyre with yy-489 e.g. 64-489, 76-489. 489 = a 19.25"rim (not sure if that exists) So in theory even a 17" tyre will display 305 on the sidewall, because the size of the rim hasn't changed. "yy" chart 47mm = 1.75" 57mm = 2.125" 64mm = 2.5" (actually its 63.5mm but my 2.5" tyre says 64, so I assume they all round up) 76 or 77 = 3" For example, If you're looking for a tyre for your 16" wheel anything with a secondary sizing designation of yy-305 will fit. However too skinny or too fat could cause problems, both with your rim fitment, and possibly the area in the wheel cavity within the EUC itself. I hope this helps, and remember, my advice is worth what you paid for it, so verify my finding before plunking down your Sheckles for a shiny new tyre from across the seas. And don't forget to consider your inner tube issues.

    Tire pressure >35psi

    Hi there! 35 psi still feels soft for my weight. I wonder if it is safe to put bit more air into Z10? Did anyone tried pressure over 35psi?
  3. I'd like to know how many other 16" EUC riders here have experience with the Maxxix Hookworm 16" street tire. https://www.amazon.com/Maxxis-Hookworm-BMX-Tire-16X1-95/dp/B00188A1LG After recently switching over I can safely say that this will be my tire of choice for my KS16S. I thought the wheel was nimble before but this has brought it to a whole new level. It allows me to make sharp turns and carve like I never thought possible. One downside is that it can make the wheel a bit more prone to wobbles but no big deal. Couldn't recommend higher for all experienced riders of 16" wheels
  4. Hi, I'd first like to start off saying I don't have any real experience modifying a tire and since I only have the one to mess with and there are not any other options on the market I am looking for help from those here on the forum. Timeline: I need this done asap, but can extend my duration to as far as wednesday next week. The wheel: It's a 10x2.5 Dualtron 2 EX tire. I've had tons of problems with. Today I had my 9th flat in 7 weeks. My current idea is to reinforce the tire with an anti puncture tape by Bell. I can't find any information about the product online, so I am sure it will not turn out well. The last time I performed this attempt I had a tire blowout in the middle of my commute home. The tape was loose inside the tire and caused the inner tube to build up pressure from the heat resulting in a pop. My current attempt is to place rubber cement inside the tire and then place the tape against it and hold it in place with another inner tube while it dries. I'll take the inner tube out tomorrow to inspect it's adhesive properties and if it is pretty attached I'll try it. The help I am asking for is if anyone knows a way to reinforce a tire through creative means that doesn't cause a flat through the modification. I would prefer not to damage the tire but will consider options. What types of glue would work well under the conditions of -01° to 62° C (30°F to 150° F) and speeds up to 68 kph (42 mph) This would be if the rubber cement doesn't hold out by tomorrow. What other methods can I use to enhance the tire to make it stronger? Soaking silk strips into glue then attaching them into the inside of the tire maybe? Other suggestions welcome. Lastly, What tires would work as an alternative? This solid tire did not work, it exploded after 4 days of use. I'm at the end of my rope here and would really love to sell this damn thing, but as it happens, no one as of yet wants to buy the thing, and I don't blame them. I'd imagine some of you creative people would have an idea that I could try and I am crazy enough to attempt it at this point. I appreciate any help anyone can provide. I'm open to all suggestions, even bad ones.

    Tire worn bald?

    How many people here I've actually worn tires bald on an euc? I'm just curious but guessing not many. On my ks16s I wore it bald enough to get a flat tonight. Luckily I have a replacement tire ready to go and my new tube should arrive tomorrow. Do to my riding style, I see many, many tire changes are in my future.

    Offroad tire on S2 ?

    Hello everyone. After doing a little more than 2500 km with my S2, it's time for me to change my tire. My tire became flat on the middle who totally changed the behavour of the wheel. I'm wondering if anyone put offroad tire like this one on his S2 or another type of uniwheel who was designed with road tire and changed for offroad and could give me a feedback. On a topic, i've readed someone saying it totally changed the behavour but in a terrible way ?. Anyone could confirm that ? And by the way if anyone know how to remove anti puncture bomb projection ? I have all over my rim ?. I didn't saw any solution except abrasive stuff like sandpaper Thanks :D

  8. Hi there, does anyone know on what’s the name of the tool that we use to access the tire on the KS 16s, I see that the valve is crooked or bent inward there...
  9. Yesterday I planned on goin on Nice long ride on the monster but right before I left I noticed the tire was flat, (thank god I have two other msupers) so I searched for the culprit but found nothing in the tire, so I decide to pump it up and i noticed that air was coming from the valve area, got some slime in there but it was still leaking, anyone experience this before? If you did how did you fix it?

    Mten3 Tire and Tube Replacement

    Hi, so I've got a flat in my tire and am looking to purchase a new inner tube or possibly a new tubeless tire for my Mten3. Anyone know where I can grab one? I'm really looking into grabbing a tubeless tire. I've also never changed my Mten3 tire but from some of the videos I've seen ,it doesn't look like a terribly difficult process. Thanks, Pavel
  11. EUCs with bigger wheel exists like 22" EUC while it does not increase stability in comparison with a 18" (am I correct?), but I think there is more need for EUCs with wider tires for better tire-road adherence and for higher torques. It increases safety because you can brake faster. It can give more acceleration without slipping and higher bending angles at startup. Last time I fell down at zero speed because I asked too much torque (bending too much) however I am only 65kg. At standstill I bowed too much forward, that I fell forward (with helmet). Since it is the most powerful EUC of the world, I had confidence on it but I had to limit my confidence. apparently 1kW nominal power and 3kW max. power (gotway msuper v2) is not enough sometimes, even for somebody of 65kg. Maybe no wider wheels are planned to produce for EUCs because of motor power limitations to 3kW max power. Is that the reason for motor power limitations? (on the other side, to be honest, riding at 30km/h on a steep hill of 30degrees, is in fact good enough as EUC power) Do somebody know if a EUC exists with a 18x4 tire? I have a 18x2.5 now. gotway msuper.
  12. So my mten3 inner tube got a puncture last week on the way into work. I was able to ride to work but it went completely flat by the afternoon (which is when I realized I got a flat). I filled the tube back up with a hand pump, god help me that took like 300 pumps to get it filled, I will get a foot pump next time. I could barely hear a very muffled hiss and it took over 30 minutes to deflate. This made me think that the hole was a pin price and not a gash. I tried to lever the mten3 tire off but broke 2 of the 3 plastic tire levers. I was hoping I could just do a rubber cement round patch, but the tire was not cooperating in this cold weather. I bit the bullet and bought 16oz of dirtbike innertube Slime. They were not kidding that it was a mess to use. I overshot the fill a bit and I think used 6/7oz instead of the recommended 4oz. It sealed the tube up immediately, no more hiss sound. I filled the tube back up to 45psi and it has been holding steady for 2 days. The Onewheel guys put slime into their tires from the factory and it's given that product a greater amount of tire reliability. The mten3 tire is ridiculously thin, I can't imagine how that innertube won't inevitably pop. Slime should help, or add an hard innertube protector against thorns, or convert to tubeless and use slime again. A small bottle of innertube slime (get the innertube one if you have an innertube, it is thinner and meant for a different pressure) is around $4 on Amazon, get one because you will need it eventually.
  13. Hello All, People usually ask me about how can i stand in balance while riding my euc. I have recently heard about spherical tires for cars. But this can be better for a euc bcs one can never lost his/her balance. Of course, for such a modification, EUCs have to upgrade their gyroscopic circuits. I just wanted to ask if this modification is simple or not? What do you think? Is this the future?

    16" Tire Width Options

    Curious to see the favorite tire size preference for the favorite 16" EUC category....
  15. After 13000 km I had to change the tire on my ACM. I've put on a Schwalbe Mad Mike 16x2.125 and it is a totally different ride.
  16. If you are having trouble threading the Ninebot One E+ extender stem to the inner tube's 'bent' stem valve then try this trick. Press the 'bent' inner tube stem valve down with a finger until it is in the same plane as the extender stem, thread the extender stem onto the inner tube stem and twist the extender stem tight on using a mm socket. These three pictures demonstrate my approach to threading the extender stem onto the Ninebot One E+ tube's stem valve. 1- stem extender valve not in the threading position 2- press the bent inner tube stem down with a finger (in plane, in line, almost flush with the metal hub) until it can thread onto the extender stem 3- Use an appropriate size mm hex socket to allow easier finger tightening of the extender stem onto the bent inner tube stem valve. In addition to a hand pump I carry a mm hex socket, the extender stem, an air pressure gauge, EUC battery charger and tire pressure gauge while riding to more distant destinations. I find the tire routinely deflates to about 40 psi overnight and I like to ride at 45-50 psi. It takes about 60 pumps from 40 psi using my hand pump to reach 50 psi. Slime markets an air pressure device which I also carry for longer rides.
  17. Hello After more than a year working on my blog about the Mini, I decided a few days ago to monetize my blog, it reached more than 11,400 visitors from 115 countries. By joining affiliate programs with resellers, I choose spare parts and accessories for the Mini. I try to pay attention to quality even if it is difficult. I would touch a small percentage of a sale made, which will perhaps allow me to improve my blog, will see, I start with these programs. https://mini-j.jimdo.com/shop-guide/ It is therefore in total transparency that I announce the creation of a new site attached to my blog, called "Mini-J-S-G" (for the entire title: mini-j shopping guide) (cancelling) jojo33
  18. After 4,000 miles it was time to replace the 16 x 1.95 tire and inner tube on my Ninebot One E+ Taking off the LED ring and plastic rings was easy with deliberate unlatching of several interlock tabs. The pedal bolt set screw came out with an hex tool and the bolt tapped out with a hammer and screw driver. The battery wiring harness, charging wire coupler and LED power connectors separated without a problem. The blue plastic tire tools are essential in getting the tire off and back on. After removing the inner tube, the opposite side of the tire was removed with the blue tire tools. Putting the new tire onto the rim took some patience for the last few inches of tire to hook onto the hub. When adding air to the new tire and inner tube the position of the 'bent stem' should favor optimal external access by the Ninebot extender by positioning it before inflating the tire. Reassembly went well except for one machine screw hole position (1 of 4) which had cracked with use. The screw was omitted from the final plastic component assembly because I dropped and lost one.? When tightening the dozen or so other attaching bolts the best results were obtained by loosely screwing all bolts into each acceptor hole and then tightening each bolt in sequence. It's worth noting that the loss of one screw was actually a result of a complex magnetic interaction. There is a magnet which is removed from the plastic housing. It keeps the pedals up when the pedal Bolt allows free pedal hinge motion. I had attached the four screws magnetically to it to avoid losses. While moving the container (picture1) with the magnet and fasteners, the small hex key which was also in the container became forcefully attracted to the magnet. A scattering occurred in the container and when I looked again for the four 'magnetically bound screws' only three could be found. Searching the floor, etc. with a flashlight found no trace of the lost fourth screw of a set which holds a minor plastic assembly which supports the the LEDs in some way. The fourth screw is hardly missed functionally. After removing some of the extra old foam padding the tire and tube replacement was done. I took the tire replacement as an opportunity to replace the male part of the 4 pin Lemo connector which is part of the recharger unit. The soldering task was a tight job but easier than replacing the whole Lemo connector (+ wire and ground wire using only 2 of 4 Lemo connector pins) on both the Ninebot and the charger unit. My original Lemo connector from the charger had some loose wires held in proper position with plastic zip ties and I wanted it to be replaced with a new Lemo 4 pin plug ordered from China, as described by someone on this forum. The new tire rides great but feels very different than the flattened tread of the old tire.
  19. How important is the bent valve stem on my EUC inner tube? I recently bought a KS14C and tore the inner tube on my initial test ride. The valve stem became entangled in the shell (no doubt, due to improper inflation). Finding 14 inch inner tubes is difficult enough, but angled valve stem adapters are even rarer. Hopefully, this is not a common occurrence as repair/replacement is complicated (and expensive).
  20. How long are tires lasting? I just bought a used miniPro and wanted to know when I should expect to replace tires. Is anyone using the aftermarket off road tires? is it easier to install the original type of tire when replacing?

    Inmotion V8 Tire scrapes cover

    Hi All, I'm a new rider to the Inmotion V8. It took several weeks to practice before I can actually go around the block. Anyways, now that I am actually riding beside the humming sound of the motor, I am hearing the tire scraping the cover as I ride. I'm riding with the cover on but did not felcro under the pedal. When I properly, felcro the cover under the pedals the scraping lessened. But I'm still getting some scraping of the tire and the cover. The scraping gets worse on paved road versus cement sidewalk. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any adjustment I can make? I've taken the nail clipper filer to try to file the cover down a bit but maybe not enough. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  22. Sorry if this is answered elsewhere. I went to Walmart to buy that green slime but found 2 variants for tire and tube. Both looked same. Do inmotion V5F+ has tube at all? I can't scratch my head anymore!
  23. Hi all, After "only" 750 km on my Ninebot One E+ I decided to change the tire. It was not really necessary but I was feeling a kind of decrease of performance, increased tilt back in the last 100km. I was wondering if my battery pack was getting weaker but it was cheaper to try changing the tire first So I did, I replaced original one with this one https://onewheel.be/en/accessories/33-ninebot-one-buitenband-16-inch-1950-eur-ninebot.html It is actually not the original one but a thinner one (1.95 vs 2.125 inches). Because of that thinner size I feel it a bit harder to jump/mount on the EUC. But I'll deflate it a little bit and see if it makes it more stable. I think 45psi is too much on a thin tire, I'm not very heavy (less than 70kg). Now the nice part: it goes faster ! Yes a new tire makes a difference. I didn't measure my speed but I felt it faster, better acceleration and less tilt back when accelerating. So guys, if you feel your EUC is not as fast as you wish, if it has a quite high mileage, first consider changing the tire. Much cheaper than buying a faster one or changing battery Have fun !
