    tire/rim question

    I know this may sound like a bit of a newb quetsion but, I went out and bought some new tires today (IRC Serac XC's) and when i was mounting them, I noticed that on the sidewal of the tires, it said "to fit HB-575 rim". I have 559's and was just wondering if i'm going to have any trouble with these tires on my rims.

    What size tire is it? If it's a decimal size (ie 26x number POINT number number) you won't have an issue. If the size is expressed as a fractional number you'll have an issue

    They're 26x2.10 so I guess there's no problem there.
