Hey M___,

Good to hear from you again.  I’m partial to Schwalbe tires due to the quality of manufacturing.  The Catrike Villager has 20″ wheels, front and rear, so I’d suggest Schwalbe Marathon Racers or Schwalbe Trykers if you’re riding on maintained roads, either paved or dirt.  For unmaintained roads, double-track trails, and rough off-road terrain I like Schwalbe Mow Joe knobby tires.  They were created for BMX racing so they are very grippy, responsive and fast.

All best,
