Smile Is it ok 38/38c in 15.4mm rim?

Hello everyone...

Sorry if it's the wrong room for ask this question.

I'm new here. Since i am using hybrid bike, so i think it's ok to ask here..

I've been thinking about get new couple of rims, because no i am still using singgle wall rims (came with my bike : polygon heist 2.0 (indonesian brands)).

I've found Alexrims G6000 but it's really difficult to get in here, previously i found it, but's it's 36 hole, and my hub is 32 hole

I found other rim that suitable with my budget, Araya Ar-713 with 15.4mm width (15x622).

I hesitate to use it, because I will use a 35C or 38C tire, since i am using this bike for touring with pretty heavy loads, so i can't use thinner tires (32mmmaybe).

Is it ok to use 15c rim with 35mm or 38mm tire?


PS: sorry for my bad english

People here live predominantly in the US. They're still asleep.

Give it some time. I'm sure someone will respond eventually.

The 'official' recommendation is for the tire width to be 32mm or less:
http://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html#width

But in my experience it works fine to go quite a bit outside the recommended sizes and I'd expect you to have no problem with 38mm tires.
(BTW, tire widths are in mm, there's no reason to put a 'C' after them.)

Rule of thumb is the tire width should be no more than about 2X the rim width.
