It turns out that all three tires I measured were roughly the same
width: Continental Ultrasport in 1 1/8" and 1 1/4" and the Kenda
1 3/8". None came close to the ISO section widths. If the height is
different, it isn't enough to notice easily; I didn't make any careful
measurements on that score.

The bike shop folks all say "buy new wheels" but as long as the old
ones can be kept reasonably true I'll just live with what I can
buy. The point of my riding is transportation and exercise, and all
the tires work well enough for that. I wanted a bit of comfort, is all......

Thanks to everyone for reading and guiding.

"Ride Tour" 32-630, Conti #0101161, is a 0.57 kilo, 80 PSI, anti-puncture
rubber layered, city/trekking tire, made in China. I hope a fine,
generator-less front hub can make up for the added rolling resistance. (SCNR)


The pair I got say "India".

They'll serve my purpose well enough, but they're no softer riding than the
UltraSports and I probably won't buy them again.

Thanks for reading,

Didn't Sheldon have some comments about tire specifications versus
actual measured sizes?
Or maybe

Right the basic model Kenda 27x1-3/8 is a knobby tread on
what seems to be the same casing as their basic 1-1/4 street
tread tire.

We have skinnier, lighter, finer fabric, Aramid lined etc in
630mm but nothing fatter nowadays.
