  • How wide is the rim? Preferably in millimeters, inside the walls(basically, where the tire seats)? Apr 18, 2017 at 20:07
  • You can find slick tires in most diameters. Look also under 650b for slicks.

  • 650bx32 or 35mm should be smaller (around 1.5-1.75") 650b is the "road" naming convention for this wheel diameter. but as mentioned above, you can only go so small on a rim (usually about 1.5-2x internal width)

I manage a fleet of 150 MTB's that are used on city streets. The original knobby tires wear down quickly. I replace them with Serfas Drifter City tires. These have three advantages: an inverted, long-wearing tread; built-in puncture resistance and more economical than the Schawlbes I run on my personal bike. They come in several sizes.
