One thing you can do is check a tire manufacturer's web pages where tire
sizes and all dimensions are listed.  In that way you can fit tires that
still maintain the correct diameter but may be easier and cheaper, to find.
Be careful that you don't get tires that are too wide otherwise you can
experience rubbing at the rear, both on the inside of the fender well and at
the upper link.
