    I'm looking for some good puncture resistance since I've gotten 2 flats in less than 2 weeks by running over glass I didn't see in time. One road I take to work is littered with broken beer-bottles people toss out their windows. Quite nerve-racking. I don't hear very good reviews on those Slime/etc. tubes so I'll keep from wasting my money and time on those.

    *edit* in a white-wall, I'm sorry I forgot to add that to the title

    Take a look at Schwalbe tires..they have a kevlar band or base and come with a thin refective whitewall.

    Their site is terribly confusing. What does "reflex" sidewall mean? Is that their hipster term for 'reflective?'

    The only cruiser tire they had that was whitewall, take a wild guess, no Kevlar. Of course their black cruiser tire was. How dumb. I gave up and bought some Mr Tuffy liners.

    I can't even find them on google. I also don't understand what you mean by "it's a bmx tire" because BMX tires are 20"
