Is there a modern tire size that will fit TOC Wood 28" Clencher Rims?

27" at times will fit fine and seat the bead tight

I tried a few. 700c was the best fit.

What kind or type of wood rim do you have? Is it a G&J style or Dunlop style rim design? Picture would be great.

Dunlop I think. It is on a Crescent.

If it is a dunlop style 662 x38c should work or called 700c which is a modern 28 inch. Lots of style tires out there. Try and get them in all black or off white without a lot of markings on them if you can.

I have found the best tire to be a 700c Linus Elysian. All of the lettering is cream and the reflective tape can easily be pulled off. The tread pattern is close to period correct and is ribbed.

I agree with all of the above answers. My experience is that there are inconsistencies as far as the actual ISO of the rim. On some a 27 1/4 ISO 630 will fit, others won't. I've gotten 700's ISO 622 on others w/ a lot of force, found that the tires of the better manufacturers have a little more wiggle room. If they ever come out w/ an ISO 626, I think it may fit perfectly.
