Awesome looking tires and love the tread pattern! Unfortunately, they absolutely will not fit Chicago made Schwinn's with the S5 / S6 rims and it broke my heart as I was very impressed after receiving them. Trust me on this, you do not want to torque the sides out of your vintage Schwinn rims trying to mount the wrong size tires. Take heed and don't try it. What you need for your S5 / S6 rims are genuine nos or used original Schwinn tires or Kenda or Sunlite brands size 37 - 597 size. These are the ONLY correct size PERIOD !!! There may be other manufacturers of the 37 - 597 size but I am unaware. As far as the Michelin's on your application, It'll be love at first sight !!!
Perfect tire for the vintage bicycles of yesteryear with wonderful safe reflective sides and gripping power plus a smooth ride.
The product seems fine.
The previous ratings seem fishy - I have never seen an old Schwinn that uses this size.
The Schwinn size is '597' - these are '590'-s.
This tire particularly will not fit old Schwinns.
British three-speeds and old US dept. stores bikes had (have) this size.
(like Free Spirits - I know, I have three of them...)
Used to replace dry rotted originals on a 1967 Schwinn racer. The tires provide a fresh look without taking away the retro feel of my bike. And the reflective strip is its just enough to keep you safe without being too flashy. Would buy again.
I bought a set for an old 1960s 'Savoy' 2 speed Japan with the EA-3 wheels and it turned out well,
I digg the looks as well as the reflective strip around the gumwall ,
too bad they dont have that reflective strip on the 27" version - nice when riding after dark
