These are great tyres for this price, it is the same tyre decathlon uses on their new bikes. I will never dish out £20+ on any tyre.

Great price but too narrow for me

Had them on my Btwin bike when I bought it and rode them for about 600 miles last autumn. They seemed OK but very tight on the rim. Didn't get any punctures or issues with the tyres, lucky as I'm not sure I could have fixed it at the side of the road due to the tightness!

Swapping them out for folding tyres this spring tho when the bike comes off the turbo trainer (which should also be easier to get on and off the wheel) - weight penalty with these wire bead tyres of about 80 grams a tyre which makes it quite an obvious economical upgrade.

They were selling the folding versions for £4 more decathlon.co.uk/700…tml but are out of stock online

I changed my tyres today (the old one was Michelin) on shimano rs20 rims. I didn't notice any tightness, just like any other tyre.

Could have been the rim tape on the wheels - when I first got my bike the front tyre insta-punctured and it turned out the rim tape on the Btwin aero 2024 wheels was shoddy/non-existent. The shop put fresh on but it was quite thick and maybe that was the issue - either way the folding one was a bit easier to fit, possibly due to it not having the wire bead.

Hmm i get you point about the folding tyers. But rim tape is far recessed inside the rim, and shouldn't be considered in fitting the tyre, happy to be corrected

These are narrow road bike tyres unlikely to fit an MTB wheel which will probably be notably wider. If not clear from the figures given on your current tyres you could take it into a bike shop and they'll tell you what's possible. You could also take a peak here.
What Tyes do I need

Try Schwalbe Marathon Plus (or Plus Tour if you want to go on canal pathsinstead of just roads) in 622-47 size
Or for a lighter tyre all season the Marathon GT365 thats a bit lighter but only in a narrower 622-40 size.
Theyre not cheap but have tough sidewalls and can stop a drawing pin getting thru.

Dont bother with £10 tyres.

I use continental Gatorskin which are very puncture resistant.

Wider tyres seems the way to go these days, 28mm are comfortable if they fit your bike..

Took these off my Bianchi and replaced them with 700 28s Schwalbe Marathons. 100 times better.
