    1978 Schwinn sting ray tires

    Anyone know what the original front and rear tires were on a 78 stingray? Was the front a Schwinn west wind and the rear a slick?

    The Stringray parts list I have says it needs a 20 x 1 3/4 front tire (Westwind) and a 20 x 2.125 rear tire which I think was a Cheater Slick. A Slik with some grooves. Front part number was 62 050 and rear part numer was 62 154. Roger

    Circumference grooves and a repeated wavy tread cross cut. Kids did not like them as you could not hide very well that you were skidding the tire and everyone else wanted the tractor knobbies.
