New Tire

I have an old Burley Nomad (16+2.0 ) and the tire have seen there better days. I'm thinking of going with a 16+1.0 tire. What is a good brand of tire to look for and who has the lowest prices on it. Amazon has few but mostly off road roads in this size.

I'd definitely go with Schwalbe. I've got a Burley Nomad too, but it's way down in the crawlspace under my house and I don't feel like checking the tire size -- but you mean ISO 305, right? You could definitely get a pair of these: .

Personally, I don't see the point in putting a narrower tire on the Nomad, especially if you're going to carry significant weight. 47-305 would give you a wider range of choices from Schwalbe.
