Some silver ones, a black one, a red one, an orange one and a couple of titanium ones

It's even worse. It kind of like the earth's sea level. The 26" tire is of a specific size. Most tires aren't 26" in diameter either. Slicks are probably smaller and, depending on the knob size, knobbies are bigger.
It gets even worse. A '26"' wheel for a mountain bike has a rim diameter of 559mm. That's for tires that are decimally sized like 2.125" or 1.95". But there are 26" wheels out there that take 2 1/8" tires which are sized differently from decimal tires. A 650C rim (26" tire using 2 1/8" tires) has a 571mm rim diameter. A 650B (still a 26" tire) has a 584mm rim diameter. Thankfully you don't run across the latter too often. If you happen to have 24" wheels or 20" wheels (kids bikes, recumbents) you do have to be aware of the issue, however.
yeah, tire sizes are pretty messed, my high rollers on my fusion say it's a 2.1 inch tire on it, but in actuality it's closer to 1.95, a la mountain bike action's big tire comparo. my rockhopper's got 2.00 inch adrenalines on it and when stuck next to the high rollers, they're a full inch and maybe even an extra half taller than my fusion's wheel.
there's no standard for measuring tire sizes so right now it's all over the place. according to just the numbers, my high rollers are bigger than my adrenalines, although the adrenalines are at least an inch taller and a quarter inch wider... (=.=")
