Onewheel Tire Upgrade
Let’s take a look at what you need to know when selecting a new and different tire for your Onewheel.
Understanding Kart Tire Size Measurements
Kart tires list their size measurements a little different than automotive tires. They list the overall diameter, tire width and rim width.
Standard Onewheel Tire Size
The standard Onewheel tire size is 11.5 X 6.0-6. It is a Vega, MBM white. This tire has great wear resistance and gets decent traction over varied terrain. The Vega tire has a relatively flat contact patch, giving it the greatest stability and making it the ideal learners tire. The downside of the square shape is it lacks the agility available to a rounder tire. If you don’t think you are ready for an upgrade, you can get yourself a Vega Here.
