How to check the width of the rim

01 Tannus Tires Installation Check the width of the rim from the written contents on the side of your rim.
eg: 622x15 means rim15c

02 If you were to measure the width of the rim on yourown, refer to the picture on the right.
eg: When it is rim622x15

How to select the correct pin: In order to accurately select the provided pin in match with the rim you want, select the pin size after checking the width of your rim.

Refer to Step 7 Rims and Pin Selection Table and make sure that you select the correct rim and pin.

Generally, the proper size of the pin can be +3.5mm to the measured rim width, but there are exceptions. At the case, pick +2.5mm or +4.5mm to insert and choose suitable size by checking its stable assembly. (Refer to Reference 1 pin choosing table)

We recommend you to only use this on the clincher type rim, not on anything of the tubeless tire.

Checking method by inserting a pin directly - Use a long nose plier, grab the pin and turn it.
