How many tyres you got in your shed?
My shed is looking more and more full of tyres every time I look it seems. I’ve had to find new places to start another pile.
The cost doesn’t bear thinking of when you consider some cost as much as a car tyre
I’ve got a FS & HT, and have I would say close on 2 dozen of the things
Anyone else have tyre anxieties?Posted 9 years agoLionheartMember

Think this follows on logically from the thread where everyone seemed to earn at least 40k – got to find something to spend some money on.
I’m pretty baffled as to why anyone would need so many different tyres – conditions don’t really vary that much in this country do they – its usually dry in places, wet in places, stoney in places, boggy in places etc whatever the time of year.
Whatever makes you happy though I spose. 😛Posted 9 years agozokesMember
6 Pairs on bikes:
Nevegal / blue groove on Cotic
Swamp things on Whyte
Schwalbe Jimmies on g/f’s bike
Schwalbe City Slickers on the commuter
Maxxis wet scream / minion on the Patriot
Some form of road tyres on the racer I never use
Not on bikes:
Michelin something (was rubbish at everything apart from wet roots so doesn’t get used)
2x Conti Edge mud tyres
Not too bad then really, seeing as I need 12 anyway!Posted 9 years ago
