Here is how it arrived home. Some of the hardware is rusty, I plan on bead blasting and painting. The chain guard is MIA but other than that it rides pretty good.

I would recommend Schwalbe Marathons (had these on my 16-in wheeled recumbent) or Greenspeed Scorchers. Also, take a wheel in to a bike shop that sells 16-in tyres and have them see how easy or difficult it is to mount/dismount the tyre casing from the rim. On my 20-in wheels, the Kwests were always hard to work with while the Schwalbes were easy.

Another vote for the Schwalbe Marathons. I had KWests on my Bike Friday folding tandem ( 20in) an after 2 blowouts, changed to the Schwalbe and the difference was quite noticeable.

I like Schwalbe tires too, but they can get pricey... Especially if you have a fleet of bikes like I do.

I do use them on my most ridden bikes.

I have run the Schwalbe "Big Apple" and Marathon tires on my bent tandem. I like the Kevelar for reducing the chance of getting a flat. I changed brands after having 3 flats and only 2 repair kits and walking 5 miles home with my Kwests.
As a safety factor, I like the reflective sidewalls of the Schwalbes.
