Default Re: Tire fit question on Schwinn rims

I have run the 26x2.125 brick pattern tread balloon tires on the narrow aluminum wheels and the narrow steel wheels that typically see 26x 1.95 or even narrower 26x 1.75 tires on them, I never had any issues with the big balloon tires on those wheels.

The pic I included here shows the bike with the big wide tires on the narrow wheels, the advantage to this set up was that I did not have any chain to tire clearance issues like I did when I tried to run the same size tire on the wide beach cruiser wheels.
