Most bike shops should have them. They are a common size for recumbents. Schwalbe makes some great ones (my son has them on his Redline Conquest 24). Be careful though, because there are two common rim sizes for 24 inch rims. Trek uses a 520, and everyone else uses a 509 (I believe I remembered this right). If you have the Trek you are going to have to get Bontrigers, or less-racy tires.

24" road wheels are usually 520mm which is what Terry used for their women's bikes when I worked on them years ago. Upon checking the Redline page, it specs this size as well. 24" Wheelchair tires are not the right size, they are 540mm.

Panaracer makes a 24" x 1" that is the 520mm standard...you can find them here

Sorry, that's right. Trek uses a 540, but 520 is the common size.
