How do I know what tire size I need for my bike?

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.

Can I put a 17 inch tire on a 16 inch rim?
This should be obvious, but since it’s not, the answer is no. A 17” tire means the hole in the middle where the wheel fits is exactly 17” across. A 16” wheel means the diameter of the wheel, which sits inside the hole in the tire, is exactly 16”. That means the wheel will fall right through the tire.
