idk the thickis but u can but this green stuff u feel ur tire with for when it pops it cover hole and drys u can get them at walmart and other places
I don’t know, but a guy at the LBS told me about Kevlar lined tires, but those were for road bikes. They were $30 a pop, which isnt bad. I’d imagine they’d make them for mtn. I never had a flat with my mtn, so never interested me.
i’ve always used the intense DH tubes with great results. those tubes feel like they’re almost a quarter of an inch thick (probably not but they’re extremely thick.) and for the slime stuff you can put in tubes. stay away. it’s very messy, clogs the valve, and is just a pain in the butt.
Hey Cool Guy,
Like Brad said, Intense DH tubes are pretty thick. Also check out IRC and Maxxis DH tubes, they are also really thick. I purchased a Kenda Thorn Resistant tube several years ago. I still have it hanging in my garage and this tube is about four times as thick as the DH tubes on the outer surface. The only drawback is that this tube weights about four times more than one DH tube! That is why it is hanging on a nail in my garage! LoL
If you are getting a lot of snake bites also try a stiffer side walled DH tire with the DH tubes and ride with a little more air pressure in your tires. Or go with tubeless DH tires, your are guaranteed way less Snakebites with tubeless tires, unless you smack so hard your tear the tires sidewall. Good Luck.
