    Schwinn tires with reflective sidewalls?

    I have an older Speedster ('74) with the Schwinn S-6 sized wheels. The tires I have are in decent shape but since I commute with it I'd love to get my hands on reflective or at least whitewalls. Anyone know a good source? My LBS is pretty good on stuff for the older bikes but they don't have anything.

    Try Wal Mart, I had a pair of 3 speed bikes that I flipped this Summer and they both had new reflective sidewall tires. The original owner told me he bought the new tires at our local WalMart. Don

    I'm riding a Speedster too. All I know about are the basic Kenda tire in two 'flavors', blackwall and 'gumwall'. If anyone knows of any other ISO 597 26"x1-3/8x1-1/4 tires for our Schwinns, please let us know!
