Quality tires are worth the extra expense and department stores won't have high quality rubber. Kevlar reinforced tires protect against some flats.
I bought some Kevlar reinforced tires at walmart the " bell " brand. I realize these are not the best quality and they cost 15.00 each but they seem pretty good.... how much would one pay for a "quality" tire... could you recommend a brand to look for....?
