What's some 24x3 bicycle tires with a cool classic motorcycle style tread?
Like the firestone zig zag etc.

Examples of the kind of motorbike tires I'm talking about

Don't send me photos of your flames I already got those!
Unobtainable suggestions only welcome if it's super awesome.

Bonus points if the same tire is also available in a 26x2.125 or similar 26!

Love me some berm masters. Is there currently a reliable hookup on BMs?
I know getting hold of them has been spotty in the past.

Verrt,
I got lucky with buying three 24" and need one more so I can run two sets. As for the 26" I have had ZERO(NO LUCK) finding any. I did find some 24x3" Felt Thick Bricks, that was luck also.

Im figuring out wheels for a couple bikes now..this one I mocked up my sons 24" MB wheel (rim si,e wasnt marked so it calipered it) to see fit and look on a typhoon. 24 x 2.3 in rear and 26x2.4 in front.. rear fender is a front middleweight,..the 2.4 is too fat and rubs the stays..I could crimp the stays a little but I'm still going to have to worry about chain slap on both sides. As far as Motorcycle pattern I've come to like the knobby MB type treads becuase road shoulder riding in New England means unpredictable sand patches and minimal bike lanes.

I like that knobby 24 on the back, I'm hoping to find something like that in a 3" wide.

The maxxis holy roller is a cool tire, but they always look somehow a little modern for what I'm after.

I've started researching moped tires. I see some ebike peeps have laced a bicycle hub onto a moped rim. I've also seen some rumors that a 19" or 20" moped tire and a 24" bicycle are very similar in size.

This is the last Whizzer I built..it had 19 motorcycles laced to motobecane and sturmey hubs..those are 2.9", it was tight..cant remember if I had to crimp the stays or not...they were about an inch lower than a 26"

My husky 24x 2.10 wheel came today..I tried the 24x 2.3 knobby on it...it would work....if the wheel got a bit out of true it would hit the frame...going to look around for somthing a little narrower, I'm also going to throw this on the Motorized Roadmaster for a fit to check becuase I'm at max tire with the 26" - 2.3's and I'd like to run something fatter...Bike is a mid weight Columbia,
