Welcome to Bicycles SE. We're looking for answers with more detail. A short, one-line answer like this is likely to be downvoted and possibly deleted. Examples of how you could expand this answer would be to talk about how much clearance you had before and afterward, as well as whether your tires were slicks or had some tread, what brands you used, etc. The reason is that tire sizes are not consistent between models and manufacturers.

comment Is it safe to use painted unmachine rims with rim brakes?
@Batman I don't see it as a duplicate. "Do they come this way?" and "Is this safe?" are two different issues. You can see proof of this at any big-box store that sells bikes.

comment Gears, distance, cadence = Speed
I didn't have a strong feeling about it, I just didn't think it was a helpful video. I see you deleted it though. And I closed the question as a service recommendation, so the point is moot.

Welcome to Bicycles SE. We prefer answers on this site to be self-contained. That way, the answer is still valid if the video is removed. Please summarize what information is contained in the video within the body of your answer. Otherwise, it is likely to be downvoted, flagged, and ultimately deleted.
