    28" 23 mm rim with a 35 mm tire?

    I have an old (but decent) 28" wheel. Was thinking of getting a 35mm studded winter tire on it to change the front wheel if there is some ice in the mornings.

    Has anyone got experience with such combinations? Will the rim bee too thick?

    23mm on the inside or 23mm on the outside?

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I have MTB rims that are 23mm on the outside and run 2.1" (50+mm) on them all the time. They start to roll over in turns once the pressure gets below 25psi or so but ride fine otherwise.
