I am looking for some 27" tyres:

27 x 1 3/8 - I think these are 35c

I have Michelin 630 32c Speed they are good but old and I would get them agian if i could.

I have clearance for 40c I think.

    i just gave away a pair of 1+1/4s hardcase for £15.

    most bike shops have the relevant tyres. i tried spa cycles for 27x1. much narrower carcass.

    In the ten years I was in the trade 27 X 1 1/4 & 27 x 1 were the only two 27" sizes I saw.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    i saw 27 X 1 1/8 at herne hill.

    to be fair though, the thickness of 27" tyres seems to vary, regardless of the stated measurements. i've had thick and thin 1/4s.
