Thinnest tire for these rims
Sorry if this is a noob question, but I've been reading for the last few days on tire sizes and am confused!
The rims are WTB SpeeDisc All Mountain 29 and my current tires are Maxxis Ignitor 29x2.1.
What are the thinnest tires that will go on these rims safely. I'm not asking because I want the thinnest, but just as a gauge for when I'm shopping for tires. Looking for a good road tire that's slightly thinner than the current tire on now.
What I mean is what range should I be looking in? 700x40c for example.
I think a 28c messenger style tire is about as small as I would go.

700x28c should be able to work. here is a similar thread

Thanks that's good to know. I'm probably looking at something around 40c
