Hello what kind of 26" tire? for a 26x1.5 (ATB) wheel or a 26x1 3/8 (small 10spd) there was a time when some Huffy and Columbis type bikes came with color coordinated tires but to the best of my knowledge they were strictly OEM 26" for ATB or BMX maybe but I do not recall ever seeing any

awesome. I think the Hibiscus wins. Tires on it are 26x1.95. I'm thinking the frame could handle the bigger 26x2.125 cruiser tires, but will order the 26x2.00 to be safe...

Don't pull the trigger, yet, I think even the flowers are blue, after looking at other pics of 'em.
