You can safely mount any 26 X x.xx (decimal sized 26 tire), provided the tire is wider than the rim and is not too wide to fit in the frame.
Tires marked in fractional sizes (like 26X1-3/8 or 26X1-1/2) will not fit at all, but these tires are uncommonm - you can get the appropriate 26X2.1 or 26X1.85 or 26X1.5 etc at any bike store or Mega-Lo-Mart or the like.
