I have 20x2.4 tyres and need to fit it on 20x1.95 rims but I don't know if I can fit it on is it possible to do this

  • Is your rim really 20x1,95 wide or is it the current tire? – nollak Aug 21 '18 at 9:45
  • The rim is 1.95 inches wide – J.Jones Aug 21 '18 at 9:56
  • The tire is 2.4 inches wide so I'm wondering if I can fit it on – J.Jones Aug 21 '18 at 9:56

    I can understand everybody beign skeptical of the rim width. Especially since 1.95 is a common tire size. Can you provide a picture of the rim label or the rim with a tire on? – Gabriel C. Aug 21 '18 at 14:28
  • It's ok now I've figured it out but thank you for responding – J.Jones Aug 21 '18 at 18:38

You should be able to fit it as the tire width is wider then the rim width BUT you should check if the tire will fit in your frame.


Almost 2" wide rims sounds huge, but I guess wide 20" BMX rims exist.

Presumably you measured the outside width of the rims (rim width is usually specified by the inside width where the tire beads sit).

As the tire nominal width is greater than the outside rim width, the tires should be OK.
