    Most likely 26 x 1 /38"

    Have you got a photo of the bike? Is it a three speed?

    Im assuming a 3 speed would have some sort of shifter and this one does not.

    Coaster brake? It's still most likely 26 x 1 3/8" - take the wheel to a bike shop and they should be able to make sure about it.

    Thanks again. I really enjoyed riding this bike around. I didn't think I would like the thin tires but I do.
