Re: Tire fit question on Schwinn rims
That Sheldon Brown site I think is saying for optimal. But yes I had 1.75 inch width 26 inch tire knobby on an aluminum fairly skinny width rim and had no problems. The rear tire weight 60lbs and front tire 50lbs and never noticed any problem with bead popping out trail riding ruff.
Forgot my weight also added mostly over rear tire another 130lbs + protective riding gear weight and nap sac with extra canister of fuel ?
