My 4 yr old received an old bike from one of the neighbors today, unfortunately both tires are flat and cracked and there may be damage to the inner tubes as well.
I am not able to go to a bicycle store to have them replaced. So i figured I would try and replace both myself, as I found some DIY youtube videos on how to do the process.
The challenge I am facing now is finding the correct parts to do it.
On the tire itself it says a size of 18 x 1.95, I was able to find a tire for this size on Amazon (Amazon Link). The original tires on my daughters bike look different though, a little research told me the original tires are mountain bike tires, by the looks of it. But my daughter will only be riding her bike on the road/side walks so I am assuming this tire I found on Amazon will be sufficient.
Now I am trying to find a tube for this tire, but cannot find a tube with a 18 x 1.95 size. I am even thinking that maybe I am looking for the wrong size tube for this tire size.
I have never changed a bike tire nor a tube in my life and would appreciate any assistance in locating a compatible tube for this tire.
Also if someone could tell me if this type of tire that I found on Amazon is suitable for the road/side walks.
Appreciate any help I can get.
Kind Regards, Andrea
