    Hi,
    I'm rolling with a Schwalbe Balloon bike tire, the Big Apple.
    https://www.schwalbetires.com/bike_t...ires/big_apple

    Not a knobby but I don't find that an issue.
    They used to be available in gray but the last couple of pairs I've gotten have been black.
    They don't leave marks on my wood floors.

    size is 55-559 (26" x 2.15)
    outer diameter is 26-5/8"
    Doh!

    What air pressure do you use Jeff in those big apples? The bike store put them on my recumbent and I think he said to run 20psi for sand and traction and comfort since it has no suspension.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    I inflate them to about 58 psi (sidewall says 30 - 55 psi) and run them until they get 'squishy' and squeaky which is usually about 25 psi.
    Rolling resistance seems to go up dramatically below about 25 psi.

    Even at 55 psi they absorb a lot of bumps.
    Doh!
