Tire Question
#1
I am trying to fix up a bicycle for my nephew The tires on it are dry rotten, but read 26x1.50, I went to the store to buy these, but they only had 26x1.75, which I bought 2, along with 2 1.70 tubes. Will these work on the bike rims? I have been the route on the charts, but didn't understand, would greatly appreciate a yes or no answer!! Thanks!!
