Just curious if any 26" tire will fit any 26" rim?
I ask because Im thinking about swapping the thick nobbies that are on my bike (size 26" x 2.1" tires) for a smoother street riding tire. I don't want a slick, just something that can not only support my weight (350 lbs) but also work well on the streets and gravelly shoulders and occasionally some grass - a good all around tire.
The rims are Sun Single Track 559 x 31 mm.
If I've got 26 x 2.1" tires on there now, can I just swap out the tires for a 26" x 1.5"?
Also (to add to the noob factor) - how do you know what tube(s) to buy? Will any old 26" tube work with any old rim?
Any suggestions? Im not looking to spend a fortune on these either for now. I can upgrade later once I get some experience and know better what I want.
