I recently built a set of wheels using Constrictor Conloy rims.

I've got a few 700C x 23 and 700C x 28 tires that are very hard to mount. Rather than force them on I mounted some 27 x 1 1/4" tires. These seem to be a bit loose.

Does anyone know if Conloys came in both sizes?

How can I be sure what type of tire they were designed for?
