Will 700x32c fit 700x35c?

Will 700x32c fit 700x35c? Generally speaking, yes, a 700x32c can be used as a replacement for a 700x35c tire. The wheel diameter itself (700mm) isn’t changing, but the width of it will be.

Can I replace my bike tires with a different size?

Bicycle wheels can handle a range of different widths, so it’s not absolutely necessary to replace your tires with one with the exact same width. In fact, there are often advantages to using a tire that is a little wider, as long as your bicycle has adequate clearance to handle the larger size.

How wide of a tire can I put on a 700c rim?

On a ‘700c’ wheel, you can have a range of different widths. 23mm wide tires have been the standard for most road cycling over the past couple decades. You might see a 700x20c, or a 700x25c. On a cyclocross bike or 29-inch mountain bike, you could see tires as wide as 700x35c or 700x58c.

Can you put different size tires on same rim bike?

As long as you pay attention to the correct diameter size for your rim, and make sure that your frame has enough clearance, you should be able to put bigger, wider tires on your bike with no problems.

How wide are 700x35C tires?

In simple terms, a 700x35c tire is roughly 27 1/2 inches by 1 3/8 inches (or 1.38 inches).

Will a 700×23 fit an 700×25?

Both sizes will work on the same rims.

Is a 28 inch wheel the same as 700C?

Is a 28 inch wheel the same as a 700c? Tyres in 28″, 700C and 29″ sizes have exactly the same rim diameter. The designation 700 is followed by the tyre width in mm and the designation 28 or 29 by the width in inches.

Will a 700C tire fit on a 29 inch rim?

A 700C tire will fit on a 29-inch rim – provided there’s the same bead seat diameter. A 29-inch wheel is the same as a 700C wheel most of the time. The “29-inch” designation uses the nominal sizing system, while the “700c” designation uses the French sizing system.

What does 700x25c mean?

Here’s the quick answer: 700x25c is the dimensions of your bicycle tire, using the ‘French system’. Let’s break it down. 700 is the nominal diameter of the bike tire, sized using millimeters. The next number, 25, is just the width of the tire (this is also measured using millimeters).

What is the biggest tire you can put on a 700C rim?

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.

What does 700C mean on a bike?

700C tires

The “700” refers to the rough outer diameter of the tire, although the actual outer diameter will vary greatly, depending on the type of tire and tread pattern. The “C” means NOTHING; it does not stand for “centimeters.” Think about it–a 700-centimeter tire would be HUGE, over 21 feet tall!

What is the widest tire I can put on my bike?

Most road bike frames can accommodate a tire as wide as about 28mm. Cyclocross and touring bikes are generally designed to accommodate wider tires. We recommend 23mm and 25mm wide tires for recreational road cyclists. The 25mm width is nice for long distance riding since it will provide a more comfortable ride.

What does 700x35c mean on a bike tire?

What Does 700x35c Mean? 700x35c is a tire dimension measured in the French system. To clarify: 700 is the nominal diameter of the tire in millimeters. 35 is the nominal width of the tire, also measured in millimeters. The letter C at the end is from the French system and indicates the tire width code.

How much PSI is 700x35c?

Can you mix wheel size on a bike?

The short answer is to realizability: Nothing precludes you from mixing wheel sizes provided the wheels fit in and clear everything and you can adjust the brakes to work (typically easier with disc brakes, hard with most rim brakes).

Can you put smaller tires on a bike?

You can use a smaller width tire with the same rims, and generally not need to adjust anything. This might gain you a half inch or so, depending on your current tire and rim. Otherwise, installing smaller wheels just isn’t worth it.

Can you have different size tyres front and back?

Can you have different size tyres front and back? Generally, in a front or rear-wheel drive, as long as you have ensured both pairs of tyres are the same, you can have different size tyres between rear and front if the suspension geometry is set to accommodate for this.

Is it OK to have different size tires front and back?

No matter what type of vehicle you have, having mismatched tires front to back can sometimes cause handling problems. Granted, this really doesn’t happen that often, and it is usually no problem to have different tires on a car.

How much difference in tire size is acceptable?


When changing tire sizes, we recommend staying within 3% of the diameter/height of the original tire. Any more than this and you face the risk of brake failure.

Should front and back bike tires be the same size?

It’s perfectly okay to run different sizes, brands, and types of tires on the front and rear. As you note, rears will wear faster due to carrying more of the load. The grip threshold is largely irrelevant, since the front and rear will be exposed to different forces and grip requirements.
