Probably a stoopid question....

Hi

Does anybody know a good web resource for matching tire sizes to rim sizes? I am confused about what is the widest tire I can get on a 700c wheel. Presumably there are ranges of tire size for relative to rim width?

Thanks

Dave

This should help, along with your taking a measurement of the width of the rim.
