Each tire has a specific rim width range on which the tire can be mounted.
Failure to follow rim width recommendations may result in poor tire performance
or possible wheel and/or tire failure.
Below is a quick reference chart listing each tire size and the acceptable
rim widths for that size. Choosing a wheel near the middle of the range
will give a balance between ride quality and handling. A wider wheel will
improve handling at the expense of ride quality, while a narrower wheel
will improve ride quality at the expense of handling. Consider these compromises
when selecting wheels.
