WELCOME TO THE
SMALL TYRE SHOP
Unfortunately, Schwalbe have now ceased production of the 406 folding Marathon Supreme tyre, so we will no longer be able to supply these.
349 & 406 Scorchers now back in stock!!
On April 1st 2013, Royal Mail changed the way they charge for parcels, to take into account their dimensions as well as their weight.
This means that many wired tyres are now too large to send via Royal Mail and we will need to switch to a courier service for larger parcels. For logistical reasons,this may mean that parcels take slightly longer to arrive.
It also means that for most tyres, shipping costs for individual tyres have increased but also that shipping for multiple tyres will be the same price as for one, so we have therefore separated the shipping element of the price of our wired tyres to reflect this.
We apologise for this price increase, but it is, unfortunately, unavoidable.
Also, our preferred courier does not deliver to some areas of the UK, so we regret that we will need to send parcels to such areas via Parcelforce, with accordingly higher shipping charges. This includes, but is not limited to, the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
Lots of useful technical info about tyre sizes on this PDF from the Schwalbe website.
The Schwalbe Ultremo ZX has now been replaced by the Schwalbe One.
The good news is, these are both cheaper and easier to spell!
In order to help you find the tyres you need more easily, we’ve divided our tyre page into sections, based on size, because when it comes to tyres, it is important !
Tyres are listed using the international ERTRO standard. For guidance 349 = 16", 406 & 451 are both 20" but not interchangeable (yes, we know! :-)). Please check the labelling on your existing tyres if you are unsure which size you need, or call us for advice.
