A new front bike wheel should be installed when the replacement indicator on the wheel rim is worn down or the rim shows signs of wear. You’ll find that you’ll get a faster, more powerful ride when you do. Bike tires typically have a couple of numbers to indicate their size. The first is the approximate outer diameter of the tire, for instance, 26” or 29”. The second is the width of the tire, which can be anywhere from 1.5” to 2.5”. A front bike wheel also needs to work with the type of brake you have, whether you have rim or disc brakes. It also needs to fit with the axle you have in terms of type (quick-release or thru), its diameter, and its length.
