20 mm Clincher Tires

Would any one know if anyone carries 20mm Michelin Pro Race coloured Tires.

These we quite common over the years and the narrowest available today appears
to be only 23mm.

Thx

Valerio

20's are very hard to find by any manufacturer. Today's wisdom is that wider tires offer less rolling resistance but please don't start this debate - it gets very heated.

I don't think there is much, if any, production of clincher tires narrower than 23mm any more. Tubulars are still available in narrower widths.

Keep your eyes peeled; sometimes narrow clinchers show up on eBay, Craigslist, and local swaps.

PBK & ChainReaction both carry 20mm clinchers
