26x1.25 tire can fits on 30mm MTB wheel?

I am wondering if 26x1.25 tire can fits on my 30mm (inside width of the rim) MTB wheel? I tried to look at the rim for more marking to determine whether it fits or not, but all I found on the rim is the manufacturer name and "26x1.75" which I don't know what it refers to maybe the SMALLEST tire size it can take or...?

I am currently using 26x1.95 on my MTB wheel.


Thanks

That size of tire should work, but be especially careful when filling the tube as it will want to unseat the tire and come out the side if not watched closely

26 X 1.5 is the smallest that width rim will take
