WTT: 650B Tires

Earlier this year I bought some Specialized Sawtooth 2Bliss 650b tires, but didn't really inspect them. I finally got motivated to put them on my new wheelset and realized they are 47s and won't fit on any of my bikes. I thought I had ordered 42s (and even that was pushing it).

I mounted them but they are brand new and haven't been ridden. The tread looks kind of perfect for the road/gravel combo I was looking for. Anyone want to trade for a set of skinner tires? Maybe 38?

47's are too wide for almost any vintage bike, at least the kind that forum members are riding. These tires are probably made for modern MTB's with 27.5 tires. If you don't have any luck here, maybe try selling them on the MTB forum. They look pretty nice.

I don't see a location in your profile. I volunteer at a charity shop in Phoenix and we have 650b tires out the wazoo. We don't trade, but we would probably sell new takeoffs for $5. All the bike shops donate them to us because nobody buys them. Maybe your local co-op has a similar problem.
