Contrary to belief, these solid tires are actually pretty good. I got this for the vsett 8 front tire. It breaks just as fine as it did before, and it runs fairly smoothly. I tested it in wet road conditions. On smooth road you get very slight vibration which isn't nothing. Rough roads or bumps obviously you feel but it's not as bad as people claim it to be.
There's one small thing though with putting it on the vsett 8. Make sure you have a rubber hammer and some wd40 or equivalent. Its a very tight fit, so you'd need a rubber hammer to shove it in place while firmly holding the places that are secured to make sure everything is smooth and inserted. Make sure the screws and the valve hole all match up and the lines on it are pointing downward! Once everything is in, you'll realize there's still a gap in-between the rims. That's okay. Put screws in one by one (12,6,3,9 then the rest) and it'd all fall in place. These solid tires are pretty good in my honesty
I was hesitant at first and was going to get another inner tube for the pneumatic tire. However, I decided to get the honey comb solid tire for my VSETT 8 on the front. Despite the slight challenge in assembling it and being a wee bit narrower, the tire got the job done. Yes, there are some trade offs but the end result is that the tire did exactly what it's supposed to do without any worry of a flat. There is no shakiness like others have said, although it may bit a little bumpier due to lack of shock absorption. I would recommend this solid tire for those who plan to ride at 30 mph or less but any faster could make it harder to brake. I had to get this tire due to the northeast region in the USA I live in where roads aren't exactly smooth.
Just need to know if this tire will fit my Apollo city rear tire,cuz they usually don’t
Just got it in the mail an fits my apollo city perfectly amazing! rides so smooth an got here quick! thank u guys so much! just ordered another one! :D
I wish I would have found this sooner. No more flats, rides nice, and fits my apollo city perfectly. Was easy to install with split rim rear tire. I got tired of constantly getting flats.
