Tire types

If you're anything like I was, you may be surprised at the range and variety of tire types that exist today ...

What do you want to know about tire types?

There was a time that I would have been stumped to create a list that went beyond car, bicycle and truck tires.  Now, of course, I can make a much longer list of tire types, just as I'm sure you can, thanks to the internet and services like Google.

Anyhow, we've assembled a considerable number of articles about specific tire types that will help orient you if you need to know more about them.  This is a growing list, so if you have a continuing interest in tires you might want to check back here from time to time.

If you have knowledge or experience with some tire type which we haven't listed we'd be delighted if you'd choose to share with us. To do so, please visit this forum and tell us what you can. You can even provide a photo if you wish.

Well, enough blather, and on with the list ....
