Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - Fyxation dual compounds for my Bridgestone

I have a 1988 Bridgestone RB-2 that i have converted to single speed. I want to try a set of fyxations dual compound tires on it (in orange) to try and avoid flats and work some of the crappy roads around here. However i am worried as to whether or not they will fit. Does anyone know? I have looked all around Sheldon's page but haven't found anything on it (maybe i missed it?) Anyone know? Also who's enjoyed the dual compounds by fyxation?
Thanks in advance,
and Lord, if you're listening, HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!
Which size tire's do you have on it now?
I think the fyxation may fit on the back, and you may need something like GatorSkin on the front
I also wanted to try Fyxation, but never heard any reviews/ seen them on bikes.
Right now i just have some 23s on there. The origional tires were 25s. I Just saw an SE draft parked at my work with some 28s, so i am gonna see if they will let me try there front wheel on (hope thats not taboo) haha

fyxation tires are, IMO, VERY good tires. very comfy smooth ride, good traction on turns.
cons: pricey, and although they are all 700x28c, they are much more like 700x32c.
Maybe i will put a fyxation on the back and a continental grandprix 4000 on the front. Speaking of which, does anyone know the difference betweeen the continental grand prix 4000 and 4000s?
