I don’t know about best, but Brett Bymaster has suggested one.

If you have a 24" wheel you may have trouble finding a good tire. 24" tires
are commonly made for BMX cycles and children's mountain bikes. If you're
thinking about building or purchasing a MUni, make sure it has ample space
between the forks for a large tire. If your tire is too large for your
frame, mud will build up between the tire and the frame which can act as a
brake. A good BMX 24" tire is the Mitsubishi Silver Star Competition III.
This tire has sufficient clearance on a Miyata or Semcycle, is fairly nobby,
and seems to be available at most bike shops.

I have a 24" Miyata and the Mitsubishi Silver Star Competition III tire, and it
works well for me. I didn’t even hunt around for it… It just happened to be
what they had at the local shop.

The Mitsubishi Silver Star Competition III isn’t available in 24" where I’m
looking (Dan’s BMX).

Has anyone tried the Ritchey Speedmax Omega BMX–24 X 1.95?

It is the 1.95 that has me a bit worried. This is for my nephew’s uni, so I
can’t go out and measure–and tire measurements are notoriously poor.

Do most rough terrain people using Miyatas use 1.75? or would a 1.95 work?
