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,
