    BMX Micro Mini 18x1" tyre options

    Hi

    I bought my son a Haro Micro Mini. It runs on 18 Sun Assault rims and 18x1" Primo Slic tyres.

    I'd like to swap the OEM tyres with something a bit more wider or at least something with a bit more grip, like 18x1.125" or even 8x1.5". I've searched the web and get confusing information.

    BMX mini or micro mini?

    Seems that the only options are

    Schwalbe Stelvio 28-355 18x1.125"
    Schwalbe Kojak 32-355 18x1.25"
    Schwalbe Marathon Racer 18x1.5"

    But they seem to be unusable on the OEM rim.

    Are there any other options?

    Thanks' in advance!

    I ran into this same problem, I didn't find anything either. I sent a few emails to Kenda and continental but no luck.

    Apparently the OEM tyre bead diameter is 400mm. The only option I've found is Raleigh Record (18 x 1 3/8 (ETRTO 37-400).

    Have you actually tried these tires with that rim? I just bought a 2009 Redline Proline Micro and I'm trying to understand the tire options. The rims are Sun M13II 18 x 1. Thanks.

    I bought my son a Redline micro mini a few years ago and took it back the next day in exchange for the mini. I didn't realize it had 18" rims until I got it home. He grew out of the mini, upgraded to a Junior and this summer went to a 13" frame 26" wheel MTB. I have other kids that ride the BMX bikes still but none have shown interest in racing BMX.
