Need to know what people are doing for hook bead tires.
I have a couple bikes that have 26x1.75 rims and need to find tires for them.
The hand full of modern 26x1.75 tires I've tried don't fit right (set too far inside the rim and don't look right) but seem to grab the rim ok & hold air. So far I've picked up 1 NOS Schwinn Spitfire tire (fits like a glove and would like another) and also got a pair of old 1.5 mountain treads for hook bead rims (free from the bike coop but not something I want to use unless I have to tho)

Any help would be great.
