I guess you should probably specify what type of riding you are gonna be doing, what tires you currently use, and what your hoping to achieve with the new tire. for example are you looking to get speed or flat protection? A good all weather all around type tire?
So your rims measure 25mm (1") wide (external) right?
I can't find Gatorskins in 26x1.6" (559x42), just 26x28mm. Which would be fast, but might allow rim damage with a sudden blow-out.
You were riding 559x37mm. A little wider is no problem whatsoever. The Conti Sport Contact is made in 26x1.6".
yes 26x1.6 conti sport contact is what i meant sorry for the confusion lol. or should i go with the conti comfortcontact which is exactly 26x1.5. i want slick trend it looks like the conti sport contact will give me a bit more speed like 1 mph maybe since it weighs 50g less than the conti comfortcontact???
My hybrid bike rims are 26x1.5. Will a 26x1.6 tire fit a bike rim of 26x1.5? I was thinking of going with the continental gatorskin 26x1.6 tires.
Yes. In general, 26 x 1.xx tires are interchangeable. You should be a able to install tires anywhere from 26 x 1.10" to 26 x 2.3". The extreme ends of this range will start to have some issues, but they will fit.
