I have 27 inch Wolber / Super Champion Gentleman 81 rims on my Atala tandem. Blue label. http://tinyurl.com/eu7k

They replaced 27 inch red oval labeled Super Champion mod 58's that came on the bike. The 81's are narrower and are nice and normal looking. Mine have a satin finish compared to the polished 58's.
