  • Lookig for good tire for 20" Luxus

    Hi I have a 20" Qu-Ax Luxus, and a 27.5 Muni.
    I'm riding quite well, but yet to learn idling and jumping or any other tricks.
    Next, I would like to learn bunny hops and jumping.
    But I have a feeling the standard tire that came with the 20" Luxus is not very good for that.
    I'm looking to replace it with something a bit fatter, one that can hold more air and be more bouncy.

    Can anyone tell me what size of tire I need? can I buy it in a normal bike shop? and what pressure should I use?

    Thanks.

    I use a Maxxis Hookworm 20 x 1.95

    I don't like them on bigger wheels but works well on a 20.

      Thanks OneTrackMind,
      that's the same size I have now (the standard).
      won't I be better off with a wider more bouncy one? for practicing bunny hops?

        The Luxus is not designed for jumping / tricks.
        The rim and cranks will not stand up to abuse.

        Unless you're a lightweight kid.

        But as you're also riding a 27.5" I don't think this is the case.

          Yes. Luxus is an OK wheel for freestyle but not heavy duty.

          I have the Hookworm on my Qu-Ax Profi wheel (double wall rim, 48 spokes, ISiS hub).
