    as they are bicycle tires I was worried about this, but no marking! (I wouldn't advise about them if they did)

    Nowhere in the bicycle world is there a 25" wheel/tire. If they were selling them as "wheelchair tires" then they might have listed them as 25"x1.00". The best way to purchase wheelchair tires is by...

    187mm = ~7.4 inches. Not sure what you're trying to work out there? Circumference is diameter multiplied by pi.

    it's my understanding that the 590, 559, 540, etc. is the diameter of the rim.
