Default Busted chain

Hey Guys!
I am a newb who just finished my build, and I got the engine to start, went 20 feet and the chain broke????? It appeared to have derailed, and then got caught in the sprocket nuts, and broke into several pieces.

So.... Did I have the chain too loose, too tight or just right and it screwed up anyway??

It appears the tire is a bit too wide, and the chain is rubbing on the rear tire.
I bought a 1.75" tire to replace the 2.25" tire.

Any advice will be appreciated!!!
