Iím getting the feeling that you already have sun ml13 wheels

or something. Iíd just run a 32 or 35mm tire on it and be done. Itís going to be more cushioned by a 32 by far than a 23.

The bike mechanics on here all say itís ok to run a 35mm on a 15mm rim. Iíve ran a 55mm on a 19mm rim without any issues myself. 32mm on a 14mm rim will be just fine.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge. The wheels I have are only 14mm interior dimension, and the charts I've looked at don't even say at 32mm tire is OK. Well, they say a 15mm is OK for a 32mm tire. I'm willing to try that I guess, but wanted bigger.
And I'm not even sure this wheel is right for doing a single speed like I want to do now. If it's not and I need a new wheel anyway I want to get one that will take a bigger tire. This is the wheel:

I will ask in the Single speed/Fixed forum. Thanks!

That wheel is compatible with single speed no problem.

Dang, I had a feeling there was something like this, but I already ordered some other wheels today. Well, at least I got a wider wheel so I can use bigger tires. Old wheels are on CL. Thanks for the suggestion though!
