Giro A20 Tire Suggestions

Hello All - After putting about 4000 miles on my Giro A20 in the year I've had it, I am getting concerned that it may be time to replace the stock Kenda Kwest tires that came on the bike.  The issue I am having in this Covid-economy is finding proper replacements. It has been virtually impossible to find any available tires that are 20x1.25 or 26x125 anywhere!  My question is: can the stock A20 rims handle a tire that is a different size? (eg: 1.5 or 1.1)  Just want to know what options I may have before I'm stuck with spent tires and I bike I can't ride.
 
Thanks in advance any guidance you can give me!

    No, you are not limited to 1.25" tires. Bentup currently lists the Giro A20 with 1.5" tires. My year old A20 came from Florida - before the sale to Bentup - with 1.25" Kwests. Yes, not easy to find tires and parts in stock now. I replaced the original tires - showing little wear at about 3000 miles - with a Panaracer Minits Tough on the front and a Panaracer T-Serv PT on the rear. Both 1.25". Not sure what their availability is now.
