Bikes: This list got too long: several ‘bents, an urban utility e-bike, and a dahon D7 that my daughter has absconded with.

How many sizes of 24" tyres are there?

I know that there are two sizes of 20" bicycle tyres. Is there only one size of 24" tyres?

The explanation:
I recently ordered some 24" bicycle wheels. These are for my Bacchetta 26at that always felt too tall.

On their blog that had an article about different tyre sizes and mentioned the 24", so I thought I would give it a try. I now have the rims, it is time to order some tyres I want to make sure that I get the right ones.

If anyone has any 24" tyre recommendations, I would be open to listening.

I've only used 24" tires on a BMX cruiser. They come in several different widths.

I am not worried about width, I am more concerned with the size of the rim they fit. I ordered a set of tyres, so I will find out if they fit when they get here.

(This all may seem silly, after all, 24" diameter is 24" diameter, Right? . . . I have ordered the "wrong" 20" tyres in the past.)

3 that I know of. Gotta use the ISO sizes to be sure:

507 is likely what you want? It's for juvenile 24"-wheeled mountain bikes and BMX cruisers... like this https://www.modernbike.com/tires+tir...meterequals507
520 24" is for small versions of road bike types, like this tire: https://www.ebay.com/itm/131794760371
540 is for wheelchairs.
