55 psiStreet tire with lightweight, tan skinwall. This is a super quality tire, and is a great cosmetic match for older English 3-speeds.
This is arguably the finest tire ever made to fit this rim size.
38.5 mm width is wider than most for a cushy, sure-footed ride. Made in Japan!

NOTE: Panaracer marks these tires "26x1-1/2". It is actually a 26x1-3/8 590 tire.
