Bike tyres

Not all bicycle tires are the same: Bicycle tyres differ depending on the intended use, riding style and weather conditions.
Clincher tires are usually cheaper, but heavier. Folding tires can be folded
compactly and are practical as spare tires on the road. Tubeless tires allow you to drive with less air pressure, which minimizes the risk of a puncture and provides better driving comfort. Be careful, tubeless tyres require compatible rims.
Cycle tyres with a lot of tread offer more slip resistance (traction), but also have more rolling resistance. Slick tyres are intended to do exactly the opposite: they minimise rolling resistance but do not score points for good traction. Semi-slick tyres are a compromise between lugged and slick tyres.
Wide tyres generally offer more traction and comfort than narrow tyres. Different rubber compounds increase the grip depending on the surface. Harder rubber compounds in lugged tyres are good for muddy or sandy off-road conditions. Softer compounds on the other hand grip better on loose ground.
Some tyres are reinforced with Kevlar on the sidewalls to protect against so-called snake-bites: Especially with insufficiently pumped tyres, the rim presses into the rubber, which can lead to the typical snake-bite holes.
