Tirerack.com has an excellent page explaining how tires react on different width rims. The summary version is that tires can fit on a variety of rims, and thus rims can accept a variety of tires. The best approach is to determine the rim's width and ensure that it is within the specification of the tire. There is also the concept of "plus sizing" where a ...
