    rim width, tire width

    ok i have 2 questions i need answered:
    1) what width rim is needed for what width tire?
    2) what happens if you put a wide tire on a narrow rim? as in a stock rim
    If you can't fix it with duct tape, you aren't using enough.

    The mods are the most helpful posters on this site. And if all shiggy did was give you a link, you know it was a simple question that you could've found out yourself very easily.

    And that's me, being somewhat serious for once.

    it was kinda hard to understand they way that was put together but it helped i guess,
    ps erik: i found that online eralier but just couldnt understand it as it lacks transition sentences and very basic sentence structure to where it is basicly gibberish to me.

    So are you saying you fancy yourself too much of an intellectual to understand conversational English?

    no, im a teen. i just meant that it is hard for me to follow the train of though. it looks like it was copied and pasted in sections maybe omitting parts, at the bottom it says adapted from a MTBR post by Shiggy.

    Perhaps you should consider your own grammatical genius?

    Maybe there was some cut and paste going on to condense various statements (you could search for the original if you want), but the point was there, clear as day. The answer to your question was, "it's personal preference" and that was clearly written on that page. There were some qualifying details that I understood perfectly fine, too.

    Boy...the hypocrisy is thick in here right now. If you didn't want the thread to be about grammar, you shouldn't have brought it up in the first place. And yes, I DID go there.

    As far as the OP, you will 'round-out' a wider tire at the tread.
    Plus, and this is just anecdotal, you can blow off a bead easier with a tire wider than the rim it was designed for.

    Kim/OP: It's the point of using proper grammar. We don't know you personally, so we judge you, half and half, based on what you say and the grammar which you use to say it. Actually, it's more like 30/70 for what you say/your grammar for me. No matter what you're saying, I won't take you seriously if you can't take the time to use proper, accepted grammar. I'll admit, I'm a bit of an elitist when it comes to grammar, but I don't mind things like capitalization as long as I can understand you.

    On social places like Facebook where I know everyone personally who sees my posts, I could care less about making an impression and grammar and all that stuff. If you've known me for a few years and you're still judging me based on my online grammar, you've got issues.

    /OT rant.

    This should help. This site has great info on tires written by someone who seems to know more than most.

    OK these are the direct answers to your questions.

    1. The tire needs to be at least as wide as the rim.

    2. a. Refer to the link (which includes additional information not in the original thread). b. "Stock" rims can be any width, and range from ~19mm to 66mm.
