Bicycle tires are what connect you to the road.  It is the item that gives you traction, stability and comfort. Depending on the type of riding you do, you will want to choose the appropriate bike tire.  After determining your rim size, you have a wealth of options.  Sharp tread edges drastically reduce the number of flats you get.   A worn tire will cause your bike to handle poorly and go flat.  If the tread appears rounded or uneven it's time to replace your tires to guarantee more safety and fun. Most mountain bikes will have the number pairing like 27.5x2.0.  This is the outer tire diameter (27.5) by the width (2"). Cross-country bikes will have tires in the 1.9 to 2.25" width range.  Tires up to 2.5" wide are made to withstand the rigors of downhill abuse.  Road bicycles run mostly on size 700 with a width of 18 to 23mm.  Widths of 25 to 28mm give more stability and comfort. 29ers are favored by many also.
