My mountain bike has always had knobby tires on it. After some research, I decided to treat myself to a set of these knob-less tires since I seldom go off road with my bike. Minimal rolling resistance, good looks and above all, they were a value at only 32 dollars each with free shipping. At 2.5" wide, my bike now looks almost like a "fat tire bike" which seems to be the trend now. I would not only recommend these tires to anyone, I would also buy them again.

Comfortable ride, transformed my 90's mountain bike to a multi-surface cruiser!

I'm loving these tires, a great way to breath new life into your 26" 90's mountain bikes. With these tires, my old Diamondback is my grab-&-go bike. Smooth riding on asphalt and plenty of cushion on gravel paths and through the woods.

A few notes: they are heavy tires, and I can feel it on climbs.

They are really wide, so make sure you have plenty of clearance

And since they're so wide, they definitely need the bigger tubes that aren't typically stocked at big-box stores.

Perfect fit on my beach cruiser
rating
by jasonmdx

I was looking for the widest tire I could fit on my beach cruiser and this tire is just right at 2.5 inches wide, a little wider than the stock tires. The tread feels smooth but very 'grippy' on the street and also works great in hard packed beach sand. I run them at 40psi and the ride is very comfortable.

I put these on an old 26 inch mt bike. They reasonable well. They are huge, steering geometry is a little bit affected due to size but overall better than the knobbies they replaced.

I bought these tires to put on an ebike project and I love them. They hold the road fine at 40mph and I have no worries about riding in the rain. I already bought another pair for my next project. I believe these tires are well worth the price. Obviously I would not recommend them for off road use.

Very grippy and durable, not the lightest but if you want to bomb around the streets and some hard pack these are the tires to get. The extra volume helps cushion out some of the bumps too.

Overall a very good tire if you are looking to replace your knobbies with a durable, smooth rolling tire. I put a pair of Hookworms on my old GT Timberline mountain bike so I could ride the many miles of concrete bike paths in my area. The Hookworms perform well for this purpose. Granted they are heavy, so don't expect the snappy feel of a high pressure, skinny tire, but for logging miles and burning calories they are great. Be sure to run a 2.50 wide tube.

I should have ordered larger tubes to go with these tires, I can't find any locally, but so far the skinny tubes are working fine, but that was my fault !

Good amount of rubber on these making them more rigid than kevlar which is a bonus if your riding surface is less than perfect. They are fat, so portly they had to be deflated to squeeze them past the break pads so probably a better fit for a disk break setup. They are a bit on the heavy side and with all that rubber on the road it takes a lot more to get going but once your up to speed the ride is beach cruiser smooth.

I put these on an old mountain bike that I use with fenders for bad weather days. I use between 26 to 30 psi on them and they ride great. No flats after 250 miles of broken glass and trash strewn sidewalks. They are a little bit slower that my 700x35 tires on my hybrid bike but much more comfortable. Loose sand shoulders are no problem. Gravel no problem either. They have very good traction on grass and dirt. I was using Bontrager Hank tires but they slide all over and ride hard, even when running lower pressures. The Hookworms also ride very quiet. My commute is an hour and one half each way and I just might not switch back to my hybrid bike once the rains stop.
