Thread: Will 24" x 1 3/8" tires fit on 24" x 1" wheels?

    Will 24" x 1 3/8" tires fit on 24" x 1" wheels?

    Will theses tires fit on a standard 24" x 1" wheel? I have a pair of 540mm Spinergys, but they are not 24 x1 3/8" wide; only 1" wide. Wasn't sure if the bead would fold in and fit as Ive never tried a wider tire on a narrower wheel.

    If it's this tire 24" x 1-3/8" (37-540) V-Track Knobby Tire

    Then yes.

    The bead diameter is 540mm. For some reason some 24" x 1-3/8" tires come out at 547mm, I would wager that would end up being too loose.

    Your geometry will change, the rear axle will be slightly higher, you may have to widen your axle, and adjust your brakes etc...

    Thanks! I already have a pair on my 24 x 1 3/8" spox, but was curious if they'd fit my LXs which are narrower.
