Need Help: Alternative tire for Kenda 20x1.2 (32-406)

hello! i need your help especially in tires. I have a classic bicycle made from Japan ALVLAYZ 6061 Heat tech. Tires have different sizes, front tire is 16x1.2 and the rear tire is 20x1.2. So i need to change the rear tire but i can't find same brand and dimension with the stock one here in Dubai. Does anybody knows for an alternative tire or tire size for Kenda 20x1.2 (32-406). Thank you in advance for your help!

yes. The following range from 25-406 to 40-406. 406 is the Bead Seat Diameter (BSD) in millimeters; the two digit number is the nominal tire width. Measure how much clearance there is in the frame and fork to see how much wider a tire will fit. I suspect, but do not know, that a 40-406 would fit.

"406" is the bead seat diameter of the rear rim. That corresponds to many common so-called 20" tires available. "32" is the approximate width, but you can go narrower or fatter as you wish.

Avoid any tire listed with fractional sizing (i.e. 20 x 1 3/8"). These fit a different rim diameter.

I would look for a tire sold as 20 x 1.25". These are relatively common in the recumbent bike market:
