Cool Re: Best Cruiser Tire for City Streets ?

I like 1.75 with a straight street tread- they roll better, get better speed and mileage, and reduce shake considerably- knobby tires aren't good for the street

on the other hand, there's a Kenda, I think, out there with a big groove right down the middle- so the thinnest part of the tire is on the centerline- really bad news puncture-wise!

Here's my bike last summer with some $10 1.75 tread (I call them "offy" tires) I've since put the 27x 1 1 1/4 on the front - really great roll- it's for city street riding
