Tire Sizes???? post #1

Ok. I noticed this but is it right or can someone explain to me what tire sizes are

ok. First day i got my haro cassette rim hub it is laced to a triple wall rim. anyways the tires that came on my bike where 20x 2.25 and they wouldnt fit on the rim what so ever, not even close. Anyways my friend gave me a 20x1.95 and it was hard to get on but it did fit over it and i was wondering. So the smaller the tire like say 20x1.85 or 20x1.75 means the tire will be real big to fit over big big sidewall rims? I always thought the bigger the last number is the bigger it is for big rims. but i guess im wrong. And the front tire i am running is a 20x2.25 on a double which is hard to get on, but it fits. I went ahead and got a 20x2.10 for the front which should go on easyer correct? And they didnt have 1.95 size tires so i got the 20x1.85 for the back. so thats gonan fit right and not be too small??? the guy i talked to said it would fit perfectly and my theory of tires is correct.
