Rim and tyre widths

I've got a new bike coming, and from what I cna work out it comes with 24mm wide CX rims. Any idea what the minimum and maximum tyre widths I could put on that are?

I've got some spare 25mm Schwalbe Marathon+ tyres I'd like to use and if it gets very icey in winter I'd like to put some 35mm Marathon Winters on. The bike comes with 32mm tyres.

Cheers!

Edit: having looked at the rim / tyre combination table on Sheldon Brown I think that the rim dimention I'm using is wrong.

Unfortunately I forgot to ask for more details before it shipped.

Guess I'll just wait until it arrives and then measure the rims properly.

    You can fit just about any width tyre onto any rim (although obviously extreme combinations get a little silly)

    it is more about the clearance at the frame and forks and brakes.


    I run 20mm and 35mm tyres on the same wheels.

    Cool.

    Clearance is up to 42mm on the guards so I should be laughing then.
