    Replacement wheel help for a noob

    Hi hoping I can get some help.
    I have a Hybrid Carrera Subway 2 bike.
    My front wheel has been stolen.
    Iím unsure what I need as a replacement wheel.
    The markings on the rear wheel are:
    27.5x1.95
    48-584
    DB-28 27.5
    ETRTO 584-19
    Alloy 6061-T6
    Any help much appreciated

    Your best bet is to go to a bike shop. They can probably supply a comparable front wheel for not much $$. No point in trying to upgrade anything.

    Just for clarification, the first two lines I highlighted are your tire size. The next line I highlighted is your wheel size. ETRTO stands for European Tire & Rim Technical Organization.

    48 is your tire width in mm and 584 is the diameter of rim it fits on in mm. The 27.5x1.95 designation in inches is a convention used which can be totally misleading. The 1.95 is a close conversion, the 27.5 is way off. It's called marketing.

    584 is the rim diameter in mm and 19 is the internal rim width in mm.

    If you really want to make your head spin, this explains all the bike tire sizing conventions which in many cases are terribly misleading:
