I posted this on the Road forum, but thought to post here as well as some people may know.
I recently went to my local LBS to buy a QR front wheel to replace my bolt on. My original wheel rim size is 622-14 and has a 700c/23 tire. I was given a wider wheel that is sized 622-19 or 700 x 28/36.
They said it would fit fine, but now that I have the 23 tire on it, I'm not so sure.
I'm assuming the 700 x 28/36 means that it fits tire widths from 28mm-36mm, but I'm not sure.
Can someone please tell me if it is ok to use this tire size on this rim - or should I go for a narrower rim if I want to continue to use a 23 or 25mm tire?
Are there any disadvantages in using a tire width that is narrower than what a rim is marked for?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
