    I've done some research, but it appears the only tires that will squeeze on to my S-7's are 650c narrow road tires. I want something more aggressive like a mountain bike tire. I saw ebay has Schwinn "Tractor" tires, but using those would be stealing from a collector/restorer.... Not to mention they are old dry rubber. I am not changing rims, because I love the two speed bendix axle.

    Does anyone know of an aggressive tire that fits the S-7?

    I still like traction... However, I've decided that I'm going to run a skinny road tire rim on the front and use Schwinn on the back. Easier to pedal and probably 1-5 mph engine powered. Plus it gives a dragster look... I still want rear traction...
