Keep Your Classic 27" Road Bike Rolling

The Cheng Shin Sunlite 27 Inch Road Tire is the perfect replacement tire for your classic 27" (630 ISO) road bike. With a smooth, raised centerline and a directional chevron corner tread for traction, this classic tread pattern will enhance the look and feel of your vintage 27" road bike.

Note: this tire is an obscure size found on older road bikes from the 1970s and early '80s. This tire is not compatible with modern 700c road bike rims, nor with modern 26" (559 ISO) mountain bike rims. To be sure of compatibility, look for the ISO measurement on the sidewall of your current tire. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us or consult our Tire Sizing Chart.
