Width of aftermarket chains?

I am trying to replace my SRAM red chain (11 sp) with an aftermarket chain and its not going well due to noise / rubbing. There seems to be a very small difference (maybe 0.5mm in width). could this be the wrong speed altogether (eg 10 vs 11) how would I tell?

    It's usually written on the box - or the chain

    did you replace same speed with same speed? what did you order?

  • yes of course I replaced 11sp with 11sp, but its didnt come with a box, just in a sealed bag.

    Check the side plates of the chain, it can be etched somewhere there.

    tyats pretty normal tbh and nothing to worry about.

    did the bag have a sticker on it?
