    Wheel and tire width

    Hi there!

    I wanna know what would cause the use of inappropriate wheel and tire. For example, what would happen if I matched a rim 406-19 with a tire 406-23.
    What would I need to use a tubeless tire?
    And please forgive me if I am saying non sense things, I'm really new on this stuff...

    Thanks for you time!

    406 indicates bead diameter, which is the part you really need to match. The other number is the width. The 23mm tire should fit just fine on there.
