confused about wheel and tire sizes
Tire/rim width, specifically.
Example: I'm thinking about building a wheelset with Alex Adventurer rims (700c) with the Michelin Axial Carbon road tires for a commuter/fun ride setup. The rims are 24.5mm in width and the tires are 20, 23, or 25mm. My question is how important is it for these numbers to match up perfectly? Would the 25mm tires work?
I thought 700c and similar types of measurements were for both a specific wheel diameter and rim width.
Anyway, thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out.
