How do I know my rim width?
The only way to accurately measure rim width is by measuring a bare, unmounted wheel. Using a straightedge ruler or metal tape measuring tool, measure the distance between the two opposing rim flanges from the inside face of the outboard flange to the inside face of the inboard flange, or bead-seat-to-bead-seat.
How is a tractor tire measured?
Locate your tire size on the sidewall of the tire. The first number represents the overall WIDTH when mounted and inflated to the proper air pressure but it is measured in millimeters. Divide this number by 25.4 to convert to inches. This will become the second number for a traditional tractor tire size.
Does width of rim matter?
The width of the rim will influence the width of the tire. A tire mounted on a narrow rim would be “narrower” than if the same size tire was mounted on a wide rim. The industry rule of thumb is that for every 1/2″ change in rim width, the tire’s section width will correspondingly change by approximately 2/10″.
How wide is a tractor tire?
An example of tractor tire sizes expressed in the standard format would be “14.9-42”. The “14.9” means the tire is 14.9 inches wide and the “42” tells us that this tire fits a 42-inch diameter wheel. The dash “-” indicates the tire construction is bias-ply, but this could be an “R” if the tire is radial.

Can you put a wide tire on a narrow rim?
Wide tires on a narrow wheel can affect wear, handling, and performance depending on what you are doing. If the tire is too wide it wont support the rim properly and could lead to some very odd handling and premature wear.
Can you put any width tires on same rim?
Wheels and tires are not interchangeable words. Tires are a part of the wheel setup. For instance, your vehicle has a set size of rims, but you can buy different sizes of tires to fit those rims, as long as the middle of the tires is the correct size.
How much does rim width affect tire width?
A wider rim will always make a tire wider at the stays, it doesn’t “depend”. Every 3mm of additional rim width will add about 1mm of casing width. The exact amount varies but for the range of typical tires and rims it holds pretty well. It’s a simple matter of adding circumference to a circle.
How do you read rim sizes?
Locate the stamped size on the back of the hub on the rim. This is the assigned measured size of the rim, and it is broken into three sizes: diameter, width and bolt pattern. For example, a 14 by 6 by 4.5 reading on the rim indicates that the diameter of the rim is 14 inches, and it will accommodate most 14-inch tires.
Are all 700C wheels the same width?
Tyre widths available for the 700C /622mm size standard vary from 18 to 47mm, with popular widths such as 23, 25 and 28mm in the mix. The big-wheeled mountain bikes known as 29ers also use this size, so there are off-road tyres up to a whopping 75mm wide.
