Tire size range

What would be the tire size range for a 26inch 80mm wheel from smallest to largest?

Depends on the frame. 80 mm wide rim? 3.5 - 5.0 inches works for my rims.

Thanks, there is no snow here so 4.0 will be the biggest I will run. The frame is a 135/170 so 5.0 tires may be too big. I might run a smaller tire for hardback gravel/Jeep roads.

I have V H-Billies which are 4.25" Those are the biggest I think would fit on the back of a Boris with the 80mm rims. I recently switched to 65mm rims and they are not quite 4" anymore. I would not want to go any smaller than 3.5" on the 80mm rims.
