I just got a 60's Hawthorne cruiser bike for $25. The only catch to be had was that i need to replace the tires (16x1.75) and had to replace the inner tubes, which was no problem. The main question is that I managed to find some bike tires for about $8 called Kenda K123 street bmx tires which are the same dimensions and are whitewall tires, which normally seem to go for about $20 each, more than I'd like to spend on tires if I can avoid it. The main issue is that I'm wondering if they'll be ok for the bike since they're street bmx tires, not technically cruiser tires, and if they'll interfere with the fenders around the tires (basically if they're larger in any way) Any help would be nice.
I'll attach a picture of the bike and a link to the tires in question.bike 1.jpg
