26" x Decimal Bicycle Tires from Harris Cyclery
(ISO/E.T.R.T.O. 559 mm)

This is the size used on nearly all adult-sized mountain bikes and cruisers.

If your tire size is expressed as "26 x 1.25" or "26 x 1.50" or "26 x 1.75" or "26 x 1.95" or "26 x 2.1" or "26 x 2.125" or "26 x " any other decimal number, 559 mm is the size you need.

Pretty much any 559 mm tire will work on any 559 mm rim, but it is best to avoid using very narrow tires on very wide rims or vice versa.

(If your tire size is expressed as 26 x a fraction this is not the correct size for you. Fractional 26 inch sizes include 597 mm, 590 mm, 584 mm & 571 mm)

If you are not touring off-road, the Marathon Supremes are, arguably, the best touring tire available. They have a rubber compound that is long wearing and also provides excellent grip in the rain, and their puncture protection is the best Schwalbe makes.
