Tyre sizes
#1
I hope I'm not being a pleb here (not holding my breath) - but the top tyre on this link should fit a 26 inch rim, right?

It doesn't Sad

Yes it should.

Ive had tyres though thats a REAL bugger to get on some rims.  Broke parc tool levers trying to get it on.

Bizarrely its the opposite - its way, way too big for the rim, or any of my other 26in rims for that matter! Defo says 26 on the tyre wall...

Quote:NOTE, these tyres are in the road section and despite the 26" description for some sizes, they will NOT fit onto an MTB rim

From the description on the page.

To fit an MTB wheel, it needs to be decimal sizing, i.e. 26x1.5, not fractional sizing, i.e. 26x1 1/2.

PS Just noticed I've commented about a old problem on a resurrected thread. Doh!
