NOTE: These tires are 3mm wider than the standard 26x1-3/8 37-590 tires. They might rub against some brakes and fenders. Make sure you have enough clearance!
Tan skinwall street tire. This is a super quality tire, and is a great cosmetic match for older English 3-speeds.
This is arguably the finest tire ever made to fit this rim size.
38.5 mm width is wider than most for a cushy, sure-footed ride. Made in Japan!
I thought I was going to have to convert to 650B to get a 40mm tire. This tire is worth the extra cost over the standard 37mm for that reason alone. These tires offer a smooth ride and good cornering. I put a set of these on my late 60's road bike and on my wife's early 70's 10-speed. She's happy with the cushier ride. They're a bit tough to install but no more so than any other 650A tires I've installed. There were no clearance issues with either bike.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
