Schwinn Suburbia- Tire size?

It's been an unlucky few weeks in the realm of biking for me. The back tires on BOTH of my bikes have gone. I've been itching for a ride and it blows.

But I was wondering if anyone know the tire info for the Schwinn Suburbia (NOT Suburban) It looks like this: https://s.shld.net/is/image/Sears/600ZX013000

I can't get the information on it right now because it's at my father's house, but I'd like to order a new tire ASAP. So, if anyone knows for sure this information, let me know. The internet has been surprisingly unhelpful so far, but I'm confident I can get some help here.

A warning to all- Staples suck. They are a tire's worst enemy.

says they're 26" tires, which is kind of meaningless in the bicycle world. However, since it's a newer department-store bike, I'll bet it's a 26 x 1.75" tire.

Do you really need a tire? Did the staple really damage it that much? Usually all you need to do is patch or replace the inner tube.

I don't see a staple doing damage beyond needing a patch/tube and at the most a boot.
I can't help you on tire size though, sorry.

Look at the sidewalls of your current tire, this will have the sizing infomation on it, order / buy to match

Ah, of course. I hadn't thought of that. You'll have to excuse my ignorance, I'm new to bike mechanics.
I'll certainly look into a patch or a new tube. Thanks!
