I'd like to convert an MTB with 26X1.95 knobbies to road use for the wife but wonder if the present tire designation, specifying H.E. rims means anything once proper size tires are found. Many thanks!

  • What tire and exactly what does it say? – paparazzo May 18 '15 at 13:46
  • Blam, these were the stock knobbies on a Trek 800C Sport MTB. The tires are marked: "26 X 1.95 To Fit H/E Rim" and were made by Kenda. Thanks for any info you can provide - I'm not sure if the H/E rim designation is relevant or not to the order of new tires. – Tony May 18 '15 at 14:55
  • Its just a regular tire/rim. – Batman Jul 30 '15 at 15:05

I suspect "H/E" means "Hook-edged". This would apply to almost every MTB rim.

I have two bikes with slicks on MTB rims. I currently use Schwalbe Kojak 26 x 1.35" on one, and Schwalbe Marathon Racer 26 x 1.5" on the other.
