Is bike tire size the same as rim size?

What size tire can I put on a 26 inch rim?
26 inch is your rim (wheel) diameter. Usually any 26″ tire will fit your wheel up to a width point depending on fork width/height. Tire widths run from skinnier 1.5 to wide 2.3 and wider.
Will a 27.5 tire fit a 26 rim?

Is 26 inch the same as 700c?
A 26 inch, or a 650c wheel is about 1 inch smaller (about 2 inches smaller with road slicks) in diameter than a 700c. Some people think that because 700c wheels are the ‘standard’ for road bikes, they must be better.
