    What exactly does wheel size mean for tire choice?

    Does my wheel size mandate what size tire I have to use?

    What is the relationship?

    Thanks guys.

    Do you mean tire width? or 26/29/700c?

    Obviously you have to match the rim size to tire size. As far as width goes, there's some leeway as to what will fit on your rim, but also how fat of a tire you can fit in your dropouts and fork.
