500A Tyres
12 Oct 2016
I Am Trying To Restore My Dad'S Bike From The Early '70S. It Is A Dawes Kingpin Would These Be There Right Tyres? They Measure 450Mm Across The Diameter.

The inside diameter of these tyres is 440mm so they may be slightly smaller, but these are the most common tyre we sell for Dawes Kingpin so hopefully they should be okay.

Do These Fit Old Pashley Picador Trike?
04 Nov 2015
I have a Pashley Picador to restore but no tyres, rims aren't marked with size, I tried 20 x 1 3/8" tyre but too big and 20 x 1.75 (BMX type) are too small. I googled and it seems to suggest 500A is in between and might be right, can you confirm? cheers

I'm afraid that we will have no way of knowing what size was originally fitted on you trike but 500A does seem like the most likely option given the other information you have provided. 20 x 1 3/8" tyres normally use a 451mm bead seat diameter, 20 x 1.75" tyres normally use a 406mm bead seat diameter and the 500A size sits in the middle at 440mm bead seat diameter making it the most likely size given your previous attempts with the first two sizes. If you wanted to double check, use a length of string wrapped around the rim at the point where the tyre would sit (rather than in the middle of the rim) to give you the circumference and you can then work out the diameter from that.

How Puncture Proof Is This Tyre?
25 Aug 2015
Do you recommend "tuffy tape" or similar to increase puncture proofness?

What inner tubes would you recommend for this tyre?

A tyre at this sort of price point will not have any additional puncture protection built in other than the usual amount of rubber in the tread and carcass, if you're worried about getting punctures then an additional product to help with the puncture protection would be advisable.
