Pros

Much better traction

Cons

Heavier

Other Thoughts

The stock tires offer very little traction. My 18 month grandson rides fairly aggresively and was constantly washing out the front end, especially on the concrete skateparks. I slapped these rubber tires on and the problem went away. They are heavier and slightly taller but it didn't seem to bother him. The bike glides better also.

Pros

These are pneumatic wheels - which means better traction and more suspension. This is exactly what is needed if your kid likes to ride trails/roots etc.

They are heavier than the plastic wheels though, so probably don't bother buying them if paved trails is what your kid mostly rides.

Cons

Bearing cones were over-tightened on both wheels out of the box, which resulted in the wheels not spinning very well. Fortunately, I have a set of hub cone wrenches. Adjusted the bearings - now they spin great.

Not everybody has the tools at home though - so be ready to bring the wheels to your LBS for a quick adjustment.

Other Thoughts

These little wheels are overpriced for what they are (I mean, the quality of hubs, spokes, rims is decent, but far from excellent). Fortunately, modernbike.com had them at a significantly lower price than anybody else.

Pros

Basically everything about this wheel/tire combo is an upgrade from the foam tires the the Strider comes with. Its mainly the traction of the new tires that I am so happy about. Watching my son face plant because the front tire washed out while he was taking a corner almost got this tossed. After that happened I immediately started looking for a better option and found these pneumatic tire. Night and day difference and now my 2 ½ yr old can ride with the confidence. Money well spent...

Cons

The only con is that they're a little pricy but that is out weighed 10 fold by the piece of mind I have when he's riding.

StarStarStarStarStar Great wheels

Pros

High traction wheel set for when the rider is a little more skilled and starts turning at faster speeds.
The wheels are heavier which gets the rider ready for pedal bike.

Cons

The bearing need to be adjusted before use. A cone wrench is needed or a bike shop can do it.
