Went to try some Atomic front tires, Part #AR141 (The ones with the deep cross hatch pattern) They appear wider than my other front tires and indeed do hang over the rim when installed. Am I supposed to use a slightly wider rim for them? If so, can someone recommend what wheels to get so they fit properly?

front tires are typically 8.5mm narrow/standard tires. rear tires are typically 11mm wide tires

As long as they dont stick out past fender of body, there fine on that rim.

Builthatch actually explained the problem in his "silly tire questions" thread. I had the ridge on the tire facing the wrong way forcing the tire to seat improperly and overhang the rim. When I turned the tire around it fit nicely.
