Front tires are measured kinda weird and even I don't really get it.

What I do know is that all of the larger common wheels you see on cars nowadays are called 16's even though they don't really measure 16"s. IIRC the wheel diameter is around 12 to 12 1/2"s and the outer diameter of the tire is just under 16"s.

If you can post (or email me) a pic of the wheels you have or even a link to the same wheel from a vendor I can try and help ID what you have.

Haven't heard of anyone using 14" in a long time. If they truely are 14X1.75's you should be able to get them from Walmart. It's a pretty generic tire but should work.

If it's a cool racing tire you want, there were two. Kenda used to have a high pressure road tire and the other was Schwalbe. The Kenda can be found from Chinese suppliers. The Schwalbe was a true punture resistant tire that I used to sell. The only place I coud find that still stocked that tire anymore was HollandBikeShop.com

From the pics you sent me they are true 14x1.75 tires.

And yes, simple bicycle tires will do just fine. That's pretty much what my Kendra 16x1.75 tires are.

I know I have seen them at Walmart in the past and even picked up a few spare inner tubes there myself.
