    Will this tire fit my rim ?

    Hi, I got a Schwinn protocol 1.0 MTB, and I want to know if this tire will fit my bike.

    Tire : http://www.biketiresdirect.com/pritm...ck_tire/pp.htm

    Bike : http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/pr...ductId=3443177


    I'm currently using 26x1.95 Kenda Kinetics

    Thanks,

    CK

    Yes it will, if the rim is less than .75 inches (internal) wide. A general rule of thumb is that the tire should be a minimum of 1.5 times wider than the narrowest internal width of the rim.

    If the label is still on the rim, it should plainly state the internal width, probably in milimeters. So, it should be 0018, or less.

    l agree it will go on the rim, but unless you're a lightweight, you may not like the result. It will be faster than what you have now, but probably not significantly faster than a road tire that's a little wider, in the 1.25 to 1.5 range, and you'll sacrifice a lot in air volume, which means comfort and rim protection.
    I've used Tom Slicks in 1.4 width, and I liked them pretty well, but 1.0 is way too skinny for me.

    Since the rim is marked 1.75/1.95 I would suggest that it is what the rim manufacturer considers a safe range of tire sizes.

    But measure the internal width and check the table for optimal tire width on this page:

    At that light weight- no problems. I have used Conti- Grand Prix that are a 1.0 tyre on that width of rim and that is a tyre I can recommend for speed. It takes high pressure and rolls very well. It is also a lightweight tyre with a kevlar bead so rotational weight is low.

    And do not forget to get tubes for these tyres at the same time. The 1.95 tubes will be too big. And go for the michelin or Conti tubes. Don't like no name tubes.
