Hey folks!
Slow leak on the rear tire. Will find the source of the leak later today. Most likely I'll be replacing the tire.

Question:
Can I just replace the rear tire and not the front tire? If so can I replace the rear tire with a different brand than what the front tire is?

Thanks.

yes, you can.

I like to stick with the same brand and model - or similar, generally stickier front than rear - when possible, but it'll work with mismatched tires.


how old are the tires? they may well need to be replaced anyway.

the rear tire is getting low on tread, I bought the bike with the tires so not sure how old or miles

There's a date code stamped somewhere on the tire. IIRC it's WWYY as in week/year.
