    Schwinn Tires

    I took apart the '88 World Traveler that I picked up from PastorBob last night. Joytech alloy hubs and rims; some pitting on the cones but they'll work fine enough for now. The problem is, the tires are pretty bad, ok for a quick ride or two, but need replacing -- and they are marked "27 x 1 1/4 for Schwinn". I couldn't find my handy metric tape measure last night, but would Schwinn have been using a non-630mm tire in 1988?

    '85 Panasonic Sport 1000 (beater, gone now)
    '69 Raleigh Sprite 5 speed (AW instead of S5, for now)

    Fairly certain that is just another 27" tire of the 630mm variety

    Any new 27" tire will do fine. My guess is those rims have a nice hooked bead edge.
