How Wide in Inches are Tires?

How wide in inches are the back tires of a 2SS?

I know dumb question but it is my dumb question.

My high school AP Chemistry teacher told us that if we remembered anything from high school, it should be the 1" = 2.54cm. I've never managed to forget that number after all these years.

Remember though, that is not treadwidth, that is the widest points on the sidewall. treadwidth will be less.

Yes. Section width will vary by about .2 inches for each .5 inch change in rim diameter - for example, a tire with a section width of 10 inches on an 8 inch rim, will have a section width of 10.2 inches on an 8.5 inch rim, or 9.8 inches on a 7.5 inch rim.

Bear in mind this will only work for relatively minor variations in rim width - you can't put a tire designed to go on an 8 inch rim on a 12 inch rim and hope to have a section width of 11.6 instead of 10.
