Tires

Hey mtbrs.
I have an old ralieigh m20 POS , no suspension. i plan on getting a new bike in a couple months. for now I wanted to do some cheap mods to enhance the ride, mainly in stability . i was thinking of putting bigger tires on it. Can I put any tire size on the rim I have or do i have change out the rims to get bigger tires on there.

you can put fatter tires on easily enough you just have to stay small enough to not hit the fork legs or the chainstays. I don't think an old Raleigh will have too much clearance.
