I think you will find that if you own a roadbike new or old, these size wheels are standard. This site can be hardwork to get people to comment objectively and not subjectively because a deal does not suit their needs.Also even if you just buy one and pay postage, £6.98 for a Giant tyre(delivered to your door, brand new from a reputable store) is still damn cheap. I think most people with common sense, will visit the site, buy a couple of tyres plus a couple of other bits and get free delivery.
By the way, found this on "Bike Radar" Giant’s PR3 tyres are proving a useful addition to their growing own-brand collection too: predictable, trustworthy grip underlined with puncture protection".

Not only too big, but they grow!

Never mind. If it wasn't funny, it can't have been a joke.

My road bike currently has 23c tyres, anyone know if I can go and grab this bargain to replace them?

Also not 100% sure why this is front tyre only, seems bargain though

Rear tyre is also available.

What's the difference between front and rear?
Heat added as I need a new rear from shredding it on the turbo trainer!

dont often get front and rear specific but i think rear is harder wearing as it takes most of the weight and can skip when going up steep inclines whereas front has more grip as it does the steering.

i'd 100% recommend getting a turbo specific tyre though, it'll last much much longer

you often get front/rear tires on road racing tires.

Have a look at the rim, if its incredibly tiny, which I doubt, we're talkinking under 15mm or so on the outside, then maybe not.

I would expect it will fit though, I have just changed from 35 to 25 with no problems! even recommendations on sheldon's are pretty cautious IMO! It is only a 3mm change...

Think I'll order a set for a tenner, my bike has 700x28c hybrid tyres at the moment so a nice cheap way to try road bike tyres on it.

Can anyone recommend some decent but not horrifically expensive inner tubes too?

Schwalbe or Continental, the small saving of buying a no-name el-cheapo isn't worth it when you can buy these for £3 or £4. Tubes that burst due to poor manufacturing are boring!

Cold - not an iwheel

Cheers. Will do for the turbo!

I have a Specialized Hybrid, I bought a load of WIggle basic inner tubes that were listed on HUKD, didn't realise they were 700x23c and my Hybrid is 700x28c. These tyres will be perfect spares for the Hybrid...I bought a road bike recently so as I could use up the 700x23c inner tubes

Anyone else noticed the heated debates that rage on any cycling product thread? Some angry dudes out there

this is cheap - anyone know if it's worth upgrading to puncture deflect 2 (giant's other tyres that look exactly the same but a little more expensive(Giant P-SL2 - £5.99))?

There will be a few MTBers along soon trying to ease their inferiority complex by criticising roadies.....

You can use the 700 x 23c inner tubes in a 28 at a push. I fitted one to the hybrid when I picked the wrong tube up before a trip. Got me home and I haven't changed it for around 300 odd miles.

You mostly want to use 23 or 25mm on a road bike.

28 would be good for weight (panniers/rack/big belly etc), or if you ride very rough roads often.

don't forget to put in voucher code EXTRA3 for an extra 3% off !

Any of you well knowledged HUKD'ers know if I can get a hybrid tyre for my Boardman Comp mountain bike. The tyres on there are 26 x 2.2. I want to try and get more speed out of it

Thanks Chrisbass.. surely a 1.25 wont fit on a 2.2 tho will it?

Thanks Chrisbass.. surely a 1.25 wont fit on a 2.2 tho will it?



2.2 is the width of the tyre not the rim, you should be fine going down to this width, you might want to get a thinner inner tube though.

I wish I could be bothered to upgrade the wheels on my old road bike, 27" are stocked in very few places with little choice and by all accounts trying to fit a 700 onto a 27" is near impossible and too much hassle to change a tube when the time comes voted hot, seems a very good deal

old is the word, my winter/commuter road bike is 25yrs old and was built for 700c. Friction downtube shifters though!

These are ok if you don't mind getting lots of punctures.
Better to spend £25 on some Schwalbe Marathon Plus

You need to look at the width of the rim and go for something no more than about double this. If your rim is 13 or more you can fit these 28 tyres.

I'm looking for tyres to use on roads/light trails for my mtg, and from what i've read around it appears to me 'semi-slick' tyres would be the most suitable, such as the ones you recommended, would that be correct?

How would the ones you recommended be different to say these,these, these or these? I do about 65% on roads and 35% on light trails, but I'm not too sure about what tyre width would suit best. All I know is I have some horrible knobbly 26*1.95 tyres that are incredibly slow on the road...

Thanks for any advice, total bike noob here...

Hot! Worth a punt on the 25c for commuting for under £8 each. Spent enough to get the free postage and 3% off.. All good.
