No, tubes and tires don’t need to match exactly. Tubes are made from butyl rubber which can stretch. Bike inner tubes will accommodate a limited range of sizes. Larger tubes may be more susceptible to getting pinched between the tire and rim.
What is a 700c wheel in inches?
All road and cyclocross bikes are built with 700c wheels, which are 29 inches. However, 700c wheels are designed to accommodate a thinner tire. Many come in widths ranging from 18 to 23 millimeters, with touring tires ranging from 25 to 28 millimeters.

Is 26 inch the same as 700C?
A 26 inch, or a 650c wheel is about 1 inch smaller (about 2 inches smaller with road slicks) in diameter than a 700c. Some people think that because 700c wheels are the ‘standard’ for road bikes, they must be better.
What is a 700C tire?
700C is used to refer to any tire, rim, or wheel with a 622mm BSD, but it could be on a skinny-tired road bike where the wheel has an actual diameter of only 660mm (which is actually a little LESS than 26 inches!), or a mountain bike with a wheel diameter of over 29 inches.
Is 29 and 700C the same?
29″ (ISO size 622) is actually the same rim diameter as 700C, although most 29″ tires will not fit 700C road rims because they’re too wide. 29″ tires are popular with mountain bikers; search for 29″ MTB. 700C (ISO size 622) is the most commonly used size for modern road bikes.
What’s the difference between 29 and 700C?
But the two wheel sizes are the same = 700c is, more or less, a rim size, while 29″ is the outer diameter of the tyre (except that obviously you can get different width “29er” tyres and that affects outside diameter).
