Tire Sizing Systems

There is even a table near the bottom that shows recommended rim widths vs tire width. Though that isn't a set in stone thing. It just a general thing when you have no better info. Some manufacturers like Continental Bike Tire have similar charts for their tires. Or if you are up to the task and okay with the risk, then you can test and try any combo you care to choose.
I looked at the charts and there is some overlap on my two rim sizes so Iím good on both the tires and tubes. Although Iím going to go a little narrower on my Salsa Fargo to achieve the overlap.

thanks
