No way.  Yoiu can use a 1 1/8" tire on a 1 3/8" rim, but not a 1.75.  You can use a 1.5 rim and fit anything from a 1.75 to a 2.3.

It obviously was not the answer he was hoping for.  Nevertheless, its the only correct answer to that question.

gaijin speaks the truth.


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.
