Would these tyres fit?

Postby haf1zur » Wed Oct 03, 2012 19:11 pm

Hi

Currently have 26 x 1.95 width tyres on my bike, the rim is 1 inch wide, was wondering if these will fit the rim.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RALEIGH-26-x- ... 2285wt_907

Would be using it on the road to commute to work over the winter, so trying to get the least resistance as possible

Any comments or recommendations would be great

It'll fit, but I wouldn't buy one.

Won't fit. You need something saying 26 by X.XX (in decimals not fractions).
MTB 26" rims need tyres that are are ISO 559, the tyre you linked is 599 I think.

Indeed. At least if he took my advice, he'd have been ok.

Look for something Schwalbe.

Schwalbe city jet in 26x1.50 is the best value for money, what is your budget?

What is your INTERNAL rim width?

budget is not to spend toooo much, but also dont want flats every day etc

rim is 26inch by 1inch wide from the outside, guessing rim wall would be 2.5mm each side

these the ones?

I am amazed, the difference tyres can make is awesome

Just fitted the cityjets and feels like a completely different bike

They are a lot easier than knobblies on the road. Bit rubbish in mud though.
