    i'm new to this...

    look on your wheel.

    the recommended sizes might be there.

    Re: 26 tire question.

    The actual wheel size is 1.5 and I've had 26x1.5 street tires on them. The wheel does not say recommend size of tire :-(

    Really, it depends on whether the tire fits in the frame or not. My opinion at least. a wider rim will give the tire more stability on the rim but you should be fine running a 2.35" tire on a 1.5" rim.

    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.
