For 26X1.75 you can't beat the Panaracer Ribmo-PT. They're VERY puncture resistant - and the design is very clever. They kind'a come to a point at the center of the tire - so when they're at (or near) full pressure (65 lbs.) they're like running a 28 when on pavement. Very fast for a 1.75"

Sorry, I don't know how to make it blue (clickable). Just go to the Panaracer website and do a tire search for "Ribmo-PT".

I wouldn't run anything else on my BUV (Bicycle Utility Vehicle)

Looks like you can't go wrong with those. Very nice looking tires. Best of luck on Route 66.

Based pn my experience with Cont'l Country Plus in that size on my commuter, I think those would be fine.
