I have tubeless tires on the bike now, does that mean I don’t need tubes? Great question and we hear this a lot. Most tire sold today have “tubeless” cast into the tire’s sidewall. They can be used on bikes with or without tubes. So, how do you know?


Wire Spoke Wheel

This wheel needs to have an inner tube installed with the tire. It can be used with both tubeless tires and tube type tires. Today they almost always have tubeless tires with an inner tube.

Rare exceptions are wheels that have has a special tape applied to convert them to tubeless or BMW wheels where the spokes are at the edge of the rim.


Modern cast wheel

If your wheel is cast, it uses tubeless tires and does not use inner tubes. All modern cast wheels are like this.

Rare exceptions are cast wheels from the 1970s. The motorcycle industry wanted to move to this type of wheel before the tire industry could supply tubeless tires. That’s why these rare wheels require a tube.

How do I read tire sizes? You need to look on the sidewall of the tire for a string of numbers. Newer bikes should look something like this 120/70-17. Older bikes may be like 3.25 x 18. Harleys can be MT90B16. If you aren’t sure, contact the shop and we will help.

Can’t the shop just look up the tire sizes for me? It’s best if you tell us, then we’re sure about the sizes. Some bike models come with more than 1 wheel option and other bikes may have had a wheel changed to another size.

What is the difference between Premium, Standard or Economy tires? We discount all of the tires we sell. A premium tire is the top tire for your bike. Standard tires are OEM equivalent replacement (usually the best price/performance option) and economy is the least expensive we offer.

Can I order just one tire? Absolutely.

How long does it take to get the tire? We order tires at noon every weekday, and get them next day. Friday orders are received on Monday.

How do I make an appointment? Once you accept the email tire quote, there is link to leave a deposit. There is also a link to the Acme While You Wait calendar, where you pick your installation time.

What is Ride-On TPS? This stuff is great.  It's used world wide by big business, military and government fleets because it works.  Ride-On TPS is a thick fluid the continually balances your wheels and protects your new tires from flats dues to punctures.   The fluid does not make a mess of the inside of your tire.  Take a look at this video to see why.
