I have sun ryno light rims, and when I measures the outside of the wheen I noticed they are 1.1/10th".


I am sure the inner diameter if the rin is exactly1"

I am curious.. are my rims too wide for the 1" ritchey tom slicks???...

thanks in advance for your answeres

Inner "diameter?" I think you need to look up the definition of diameter.

I would not use a tire narrower than ~1.4" on the Rhyno Lite.

I fractureded a rib the other day, and pulled some muscles in my back (painful muscle spasms) so I have gotten like 5 hrs of broken sleep in the last 3 days, and I am on percocets, and flexeril..

anyway.. I was afraid you were going to say that..

what do you thing could happen? I think the 100psi will hold the rim tight against the rim..

The rim is wider than the tire. The problem is not so much it will not stay on the rim as the tire will handle poorly and be very susceptible to sidewall damage.

I got an exact measurment.. https://www.sun-ringle.com/ShowRoom/MTB/Rims/images/rhyno1.jpg

outside of rim is 1.08268

inside is 0.86614

does that make a difference???? I thought the inner was all that mattered...
