    Depends on how old the Peugeot is. Most likely it is 27" however if it is a very old Peugeot and/or brought over from Europe by an individual, as opposed to being bought in a bike shop in the USA, it could be 700C. I have an old Peugeot from the 60s and it had 700C tires with Shcrader valves.

    If it already has tyres on it, then transcribe every single ****ing letter on the sidewall. one of them is bound to be the answer to the question. If it has no tyres, then you need to tell us.

    It does have tires on it but they're so old they don't have any marking that's why I wrote this. It was also sold at a bike shop; I know this because the sticker for the bike shop still is on it.

    Yes, very likely 27x1.25 will fit nicely.

    is there any ingraved numbers on the wheel rims?

    It might have a size on the inner tubes or the rim tape.
    but inner tubes can fit 700c and 27", so might have both numbers on them.

    I would say that its likely to be 700c though. Coming from a continental Europe manufacturer

    Assuming clincher tires...
    Just measure the diameter of the rims, between the points where the tire bead settles inside the rim.
    Then measure the diameter of the tire itself between the sides, when inflated. A caliper might be the best tool for this.
    1" = 25,4mm, for people who still live in the Dark (imperial) Ages.

    630mm rim diameter = so called 27" tires
    622mm rim diameter = 700C tires
    584mm dim diameter = 650B tires
    etc...
