Hi Scott

Clincher tires are measured by total outside diameter. Nominally, a 26×3 tire has a 26″ outer diameter, and a 3″ cross section (and a 3″ distance from rim to surface of tire). Whether you like it or not, you will have to use one of the tires available. I will suggest to use one of the tires offered by Coker, the 26×3 Simplex Cycle Blackwall tire. The thread is a classic type motorcycle thread, and you should be able to use it for any purpose without problems. You will find the Simplex tire on Coker’s Motorcycle tire list.

Kind regards,

Carl
