  • RIM SIZE FOR MOTOR VEHICLES (i.e. cars, motorcycles, etc.):
The last two digits in the numbers imprinted on your tires is your rim size. For example, “180/55ZR17”, means you have 17\” rims.

Please be aware that the numbers on your bicycle tire is the tire size, not rim size, so you must follow these instructions to find your actual rim size:

    Measure the diameter of your rims, NOT tires, from edge to edge. Your measurement will always end up to be UP TO 1\” more than your actual rim size. For example, your measurement of a 22.1\” to 23\” diameter, means you have 22\” rims. Therefore you should be ordering a 22\” size rim tape.

    Also, rim tapes can only be applied to rims with disc brakes since you CANNOT have the pad brakes rub on the rim tapes.
