Can I fit 650 tires on 700 wheels?

I'm looking into getting some new tires for my steel bike, but my wheels are 650 and the tires I want are 700, can that possibly fit or is there a way to fit that on my steel road bike?

Bring the 700 tires to your local bike shop and ask them to shorten them to 650 for you. They'll know what to do.

Wow. I hadn't been there in a while, but just learned my FSA computer mount is "bulky and heavy". The more you know. . .

That's because they keep putting them in their jersey pockets. Noobs.

Ex, cut it to length and sew it back together. They sew tubulars, right? Same thing, more or less.
