If that's the one with the green stripe then yeah 😂

Yes. I love the CX. I bought an extra one from ewheels and put it on my Nikola Plus. It made that wheel better for me.

Ha ha that's because you ride Z10.  I had chance to ride both tires.  I do prefer the one on this batch.

Yeah that's probably true but when i first ride the z10 it was weird but you do get used to different stuff (tyres) but which ever suits i suppose and the most you feel comfortable on 👍

I don't think they would of changed it if there wasn't any complaints

There were plenty of complaints from here. I really didn’t understand it. At one point they had me convinced I had to change my tire so I kept emailing Jason and bugging him. Then as I kept riding the 16X I realized how wonderfully smooth and comfortable this wheel was. I don’t want to change it. You can go from 0 to 31 mph in the snap of a finger and even when you’re going that fast it feels like you’re going 15 mph. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the CX tire in my opinion.

No, it's not a typo. Before KS changed from CX321 to H-5167 tire ( in 2nd batch), I found this Anti Puncture version of H-5167 and swapped out my CX321. Now KS ships their 2nd batch 16X with Regular version of H-5167.

I simply want to point out those 2 versions of H-5167 still have a little difference, even though they have the same pattern.

From my previous post in this thread, you can see the Anti Puncture ones have blue line and Regular ones have yellow line.

And for those of you who love CX321, don't worry about it, you can just ignore this unimportant information. :)

I don’t think it’s unimportant. I think it’s great information. I’d love to try one of those tires.  I’m feeling pretty cocky since I was able to take my apart and change the Nikola tire. LOL. They say the 16X is easier so I wouldn’t mind trying. It was kind of fun. Of course I punctured the first inner tube but I guess every new guy does that once.

Im not sure why it bothers you so much that some of us like the CX. It’s no big deal man. :-)

Stephen, I think you're a Chinese, because your description of the tire sounds Chinese. :efee612b4b:

Please be little little more specific, we talking about the round black piece of rubber with some kind of pattern with the technical type "wide, black and strong". 

I think the tire you mean is called "wide, black and not so strong." :roflmao:

Quick question - what is the outer tyre diameter of the 16X? Is it actually 17"?

Very interesting. About the same as the Z10 then. Thanks!

Thanks @eddiemoy ! Definitely thinking about switching out the tire. In onewheeling, the tire profile makes such a huge difference in riding feel, I can imagine it's the same for EUC.

How do you get to the screws to undo for the body shell? Are they behind the padding on the sides?

 

You need to peel back the outer edges of foam to get to the screws. 2 screws in top and 4 in front/back sides.

For those who are struggling with the CX and CST tire.  Get the CYT.  Just got mine today and it is the best tire IMO.  Rides just like the other KS wheels. Absolutely zero gyro.  Lean and it will turn.  No need to learn new technique.

About the ChaoYang tires. ChaoYang is a brand and they make dozens of different tires. Eddiemoy got the H-5102 (MSX, 18XL v1), the Ebay link above is for the H-5167 (16X 2nd batch), and the Aliexpress link above that has pictures of both the H-5102 and a H-5146 (don’t remember which smaller EUCs comes with it).

They all ride and behave differently, especially under wet conditions. Don’t get the 5102 if the ground is ever wet where you ride.

Be aware of which tire you want to buy.

Tires tend not to provide their optimum grip until the mold release is scrubbed off.   Is the 5102 still a problem in wet after it's seen a couple hundred miles?  Or is it maybe just a harder compound?

It was horrible all the way from 0 to 5000km. The compound is actually on the softer side, it’s just that the shallow tread pattern doesn’t really offer anything that would grab, so it behaves almost like a slick street tire.

While I talk about wet grip, I never had notable issues on clean, wet pavement. It’s unpaved and especially dirt and grass surfaces that the H-5102 fail to grip to, unlike all other EUC tires.
