Does anyone have experience with the Dura 700 35c white/cream tires? Do they have any markings on the side walls? Pictures I have seen do not show any but since I have not seen the actual tire thought I would ask.

Thanks in advance.

Ed, Linus Bikes makes a tire called Elysian, and it is a nice off white, cream color and it's also 700x35c. The nice part is that they have no logos on the sidewalls and the reflective stripe can be peeled right off. The tread pattern is straight grooves so they look good on any era bike.
You can see them here: https://www.linusbike.com/products/elysian-tire-cream-2

I have a pair of Dura 27x1 1/4, ISO 32-630, white, that I picked up last year & mounted on wood wheels. There are no markings on the side walls.... just rechecked the tires & they're Duro, my mistake.

I have those Linus tires on my Iver Johnson. They're a great off white color and ride nice. The reflective stripe came off, but it left residue behind. I haven't tried too hard to remove it, but alcohol did not work. Here they are post reflective stripectomy:

That is so cool. What year is your Iver? Oddly enough the Linus I bought are for my 1911 Iver. I will post a picture or two when I get the tires and wheels on her.

I'm interested in these too. Do you guys find they duplicate the old 28 x 1 1/2 size well (is that your goal?)? Can we see more pics? I've been using Electra Amsterdam but they're 700 x 40C. Here are a few pics:

This has been an extremely informational post. Thanks to all who have participated.
As a follow up question. How have folks blocked out the script, as is the case with Mike. Or removed the reflective tape as is the case with dutchess, but then cleaned up the residue? What solvent works to remove the residue without damaging the rubber.

Your safety is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
I tried the same tires on my Iver but the tolerance between the front fork and the tire was too close for my liking so I decided to go with the 35

I don't think I could clear 40s on my Iver since the Special Racers have a relatively tight frame (original tires were tubular 28s). The Linus tires were a nightmare to get on the wood wheels—if the tire gets a flat, I might sell the bike!

I just peeled the reflective stripe off. I tried alcohol and Goof Off on the residue with no success. Would love to hear if someone knows something that works.
