How do I match tire size to rims?
Multiply the width in inches by 25.4 (the number of millimeters per inch). This calculation gives you the first number in the tire size. Typically, you can add up to 10 millimeters to the width. So if you had an 8.5-inch rim, the section width range you can safely use is between 215 and 225.

How do I know if a tire will fit my bike rim?
If the tyre and rim ISO diameters match, the tyre will go on the rim. That doesn’t mean it should. A thinner rim suits a narrower tyre; a wider tyre needs a wider rim to support it.
