Available slick tire for Alex Ace 19 rims

Hi all,

I'm looking for road slick tires for my "Alex Ace 19" rims (wheel size 26"). Currently 26 x 1.95 tires on the rim, but I'd like to install 26 x 1.25 slick tires for road riding. Is it possible to do on this rim? Thanks in advance.

You can use Continental's slick on there no problem. I don't remember what its called, but its around $30 and has a flat protection system. Rated to 80psi, but mine haven't ever been less than 100psi. Its a 1.3, and like all Continental tires, one of the best made tires in existance. Wears like iron.
