    probably some no name chinese brand tire. The best and widest street style tire that I have found to be in the 29''/700c size is the Serfas Drifter. I bought mine at REI for ~$30 each. They're 2.0 or 2.1 inches wide and have an interesting pattern to them

    I would recommend building one of these bikes to anybody though . I blew out the rear hub and haven't been able to find a replacement for it . As far as I know you cant even order from the manufacturer . Whoever that mat be .
