Rim and Tire combination (Compatible?)
Is the 'Velocity Aerohead 28h 20inch' rim and the 'Panaracer Minits Light Tire - 20 x 1-1/8' compatible?

The key number that has to match is the bead seat diameter. That's a 406 rim and a 451 tire. Look for a 20" tire that has the width indicated as a decimal.

I'm not sure if you're trying to match an existing rim to a tire, or an existing tire to a rim on your bike. It looks like the Minits Lite also comes in 20x1.25", which would be a 406mm tire for bmx-compatible rims. OR, if you're after a 451 rim, the Velocity Fusion is similar to the Aerohead and comes in 451.

When there's a question about tire sizes, it never hurts to reference Sheldon Brown's article.
