Product Details

Bontrager LT3 Tire

With Bontrager's LT3 tire, you'll get the best of both worlds. The aggressive side knobs bite into the dirt, while the connected center tread rolls fast on pavement. It can be used either as a front or a rear tire for great traction anywhere.

Features and Information

  • This can be used as a front and rear tire.

    These tires came stocked with my 2012 trek 3500 disc 3 series and they blew, literally the back tire popped within a month I bought my bike. It was a piece of metal left from a car part on the road and had NO SHARP eddges!!!! Just went through it like butter.

    Comments:

    I use these tires on unpaved rail trails primarily. Ideal tire for this type of riding and works well on roads too. Packed single track is fine. Not very good on loose dirt/rocks. I've only put a couple hundred miles on so far, but no major problems yet.

    Comments:

    Came with my trek. The tire held up well for about a month. Then I started biking to and from work. Front tire still hasn't gone flat yet. Back tire went flat on a friday. Replaced tube, nothing stuck in tire and rim in great condition, Held air in it that friday night. Saterday.morning flat. Had a new tube professionally installed. Held air for 2 day without any riding. That monday night woke up to a loud bang as tire's tube exploded. Won't even hold a lil bit of air. Mostly ride on streets, sidewalks, and bike paths. Seems that tire is to thin to protect tube. Going to buy a better tire after this.

      My Trek came with these tires and they have been great. Had my bike for two years with and I've only had to replace the rear tire because of wear, but the front one has never had a flat and the thread still good.

        Comments:

        I purchased this tire as an upgrade with the "hard case" option, thinking that they would help prevent flats. I had the new tires just over one week when a small piece of metal pierced right through them like butter. Not recommended if you want to avoid a flat tire.

        Put about 150 miles on two of these. No problems at all. Looks really good on bike. Improved road handling. Great traction in dry dirt and wet mud. I use tubes and have not had a flat.

          Comments:

          First ride on my new bike, about 1.5 miles just to say hello and the front tire goes flat. A very tiny burr to small to draw blood if you stepped on it with bare feet was the reason. I think the tire is to soft and to thin to handle anything.
