## How wide is a 37 C TYRE?

The ETRTO size specification 37-622 indicates the width of 37 mm and the tire inner diameter of 622 mm. This dimension is clear and allows a precise classification of the rim size. The inch marking (e.g. 28 x 1.40) states the approximate outer diameter (28 inches) and the tire width (1.40 inches).

## How wide is a 200 tire?

For example a 200/55R18 would be around 26.7 inches tall and 7.9 (200mm/25.4) inches wide.

## How do I know the width of my bike tire?

Measure the flat surface across the tire’s tread from one side of the tire to the other. This is the tire width. Measure in inches for traditional tire measurements or in millimeters for the ISO measurement.

## Is a 28 inch tire the same as 700C?

28”/700C/29er The wheel sizes 28”, 700C and 29er or 29” all refer to the same rim size: ETRTO 622. The tyres can differ, but the 28”, 700C and 29er are all the exact same rim diameter. The 700 markings will be followed by the width in mm, and the 28 or 29 markings will be followed by the width in inches.

## Is 27.5 the same as 700C?

Just as a 700C wheel is the same diameter as a 29” (29er) wheel, 650B shares the exact same rim diameter as 27.5”. 27.5”/650B rims have a bead seat diameter of 584mm, and 29”/700C rims have a bead seat diameter of 622mm.

## How wide are 40c tires?

You’d be forgiven if you thought it was some abbreviation for a metric measurement, since the 700 represents millimeters, and a 40c tire is supposed to equate to a 40mm wide on certain width rims.

## How wide are 47c tires?

Referred to as “Road Plus” by WTB, the Horizon 650 x 47c tire measures the same outside diameter as a 700 x 30mm road tire and is intended to be used with endurance road and gravel applications.

## What size is a 28 inch tire?

Tires with diameters 622 mm and 635 mm are both classified as 28 inch.

## What is section width of tire?

A tire’s section width, also known as cross section width, is the measurement of the tire’s linear width from sidewall to sidewall (excluding any raised letters, ornamentation, or protective ribs). This is printed on the sidewall itself along with other markings that give you information about the tire.

## How wide is a 180 tire?

So, because there’s an allowable tolerance on the nominal width, a 180 labeled tire can measure 170 mm or 190 mm. The manufacturers are given quite a bit of wiggle room in their labeling versus their measurements. So, don’t get hung up on the 180 vs. 190 label.

## Does the width of a bike tire matter?

While tire diameter should be an exact match, you do have the option of putting on a tire with a slight variation in width. Some riders opt for wider tires, for example, to give them more traction and a somewhat cushier ride.
