Can i replace a 27.5 x 1.75 road wheels on my mtb that has current tire of 27.5 x 2.1? (Cause im ordering one right now and im scared it will not fit)
Prolly answered this in the vid but I’m at work so I can’t watch all of it, my son bent his front wheel and the measurement is 24×1.95 but all I can find is 24×1.75 wheels, will the 1.95 tube and tire fit the 1.75 wheel?
I need help! My tire size is 26×2.10 what would fit it?
What size is 21-28 700c is it 700×28? Trying to buy online not very clear
I had 44-622 tires on my bike. Can I put on 40-622 tires without changing the rim?

is it possible to change type of tires on Rayleigh evo2 some thing with bit more bounce maybe some thing like bmx.
Hi, I am looking for 28×1 5/8×1 3/8 tyre and tube, unable to find, what are your suggestions?
Can I put 27×1 1/8-1/4 into 27x 1 rim ? I can’t find an exact size 27×1 anywhere eBay or amazon.I have aracer bike 30 years old needs new tires and tube.
Thank you! That "C" was really bugging me.
Thank goodness for YouTube. Who would have thought that simply needing a new innertube would require a guide to help decipher the many sets of numbers on this tire.
I have an older women’s Ross 3 speed and the tires are dry rot so no tire size visible. Can you tell me what size it needs?
So if mine says 26×1.50 should I go smaller or larger?
I am finding that is a specialty size and mostly am finding either 1-3/8 or 1-3/4
The fact that you didn’t mention 19” trials tire sizes really disappoints me
Thank you, that was great information about the ISO measurement.
I still don’t understand..
I bought a 26" x 3" wheel for the front of my Ebike, the problem is I’m having problems finding three inch fat tires, will a 2.5" tire fit on a three inch rim? Or should I go larger, i.e., will a 4inch tire fit on a 3" rim?
Absolutely needed this.
I’m spinning I’m spinning. This helped confirm I have no idea and still don’t.
So some tires fit more than one rim? My old tires are 700c x 35. I bought one that says it can fit 700c x 32-45. It actually works!
whats the best rim for tyre size 60×559
This was helpful. Wasn’t releasing of the Bullshit stress and anger from getting wrong tires, but was helpful. Thanks
Just show us…….
Will a 26” hub La E up to a29” rim, may I ask. : )
Ok thanks! Next problem. You have a rim and looking for tyre and then you have to measure the rim with the spokes and bearings. How do you measure the rim from the beginning? Big tool-caliper or with a yardstick at the inside but that will not be exact measure( yardstick). Also it doesnt stand on the rim what it is. Never seen a list what tyre fits to a rim?? I have 622mm and this is to small and at a list of tyres-list next step is 630 = 29inch?? But I have a racing bike old one and as I am concerned they never had that size or? Tried to measure rim to 630mm but as above it is hard to measure exact. How big shuold the gap between the two be when you bent it on at the last cm:s? So what to do? :).
Can I put a wider type in my bicycle without changing the RIM if they are both 26"?
The fork can take it but i’m not sure if the tire can be installed in the rim.
How is 26 x 4.0 – 4.8 worked out?
It’s O’k, but how to chose the right inner width of rim and tire? The point is that I have an city bicycle 24" and would like to set up a MXUS 350W 36V motor on the front wheel. Could you tell me what proportions are considered to be the right for rims and tires in my case? Because, now I have on my front wheel: the Forza 24" x2.00 57-507 tire and the Gravity 24" 507 rim with height 30mm and outer width about 21-23mm.
Great info but it was really hard to focus with the music. I’d say it’s background music but it was hard to tell the difference in what was louder……the speaker or the music.
you absolutely did the best you could given the subject matter! you really did help, thank you!
OMFG dude get to the fucking point, how to measure the tyre size based on rims you chode
All I know now is that with bike tires, you’ll probably run into issues. **shrugs**
Thanks for the helpful video! It’s been years since I looked for new tires and as soon as I started looking today I realize things were convoluted LOL. Looks like I will need to be careful.
It’s like grandpa Simpson came up with bike tire sizes back in the day.
i have a bmx with 20×2.125 tires and i need to know the rim size and inner tube
I thought this would show you how to measure the tire yourself. I’ll keep looking.
My bike tire says "26×2.00 TO FIT 26×1.50-1.75 RIM". WTF does that mean?
Good video with great content.just to confirm what you said at the end.my mountain bike has 28mm road tyres but I want to go for some wider knobbly tyres the current rim should be able to cater for that?Taking into consideration the width of the forks/frame.
Any help is appreciated 👍
Unbelievable, the only good thing this video guys succeeded in doing is warn people this shit is confusing as life. That is all he did.
Can I replace a size 26 x 1 3/8 to a size 26 x 1 3/4 On an old school bike
My tires are 700x23c. What size inner tube do I get?
