I have seen a few really cool looking bikes with some big fat bubbly tires on them. I am curious about pricing some out for my build but don't know where to look or even what to ask for. My two questions are if anyone knows where I can order them from or a webpage I can check prices? And if you can use the standard rims a bike comes with or if you need to get smaller diameter rims to make them work.

Something like the tires on this bike:
