    What tire size range for Sun CR18 26" rims?

    My Cannondale I got used has these rims, and came installed with Kenda 26x1.50 road tires, and I got a set of Kenda off-roads 26x1.95, except one tire has bead showing so I'm replacing that one. I'm checking out PerformanceBike but don't see a 26x1.95 option.

    The other offroad tire for the front is the same 26x1.95, would it matter if I get a different width on the rear? What's the max I should go?

    Lastly, in the good offroad tire (I'd mount on front), there is a slight bend in the bead, and some small tears in 2 parts of the tire. Should I just replace the front, too? The rest looks pretty good.

    1.1"-3.0" will fit on the rim. Your limit is what will fit in the frame/fork.

    Mixing widths is fine.

    The second pic looks fine.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    But not the first pic? That's from the same tire as second pic.

    Thanks!

    If you do not trust it, replace it.
