I have an old Bridgestone MB6 with 26" x 1.5 rims. I currently have 2" knobbies on them. I'd like to switch the tires to something like Contiential Supercontact (slicks). What is ranges of tires that would fit a 26" x 1.5 rim?
Are there any resources on-line that has some kind of table to figure out compatibility?

no reason to ever run anything smaller than a 1.5 inch tire. you could fit probally up to a 2.3 no table needed. panaracer makes great street tires: the pasela. it comes in 1.25, 1.5 and 1.75. they cost about 25 bucks with a kevlar puncture belt, and weigh 300 grams, so theyre lite. i ride them on the road and fire roads, and dirt roads. they wear like iron.
