Rim Width Versus Tire

There are tons of fat bikes out there with 80-90mm rims and 4" tires. Surly's rims for their 3.8" Nates stock were on 82mm rims. I see on 45NRTH's website for the Dillinger 4's, they specify that they are for rims of 64-94. If you want new rims in the 65-70 size to shed weight, that's a whole other ball game.
