Default can a 24mm tire be mounted on a 26 mm wheel

hi everyone,
I'm looking to get some slicks and i've found a bunch at speedtech, but they are all 24mm tires, and i am looking at 26mm RPM Wheels. They look more like real wheels instead of that crappy white stuff. Will the 24s fit the 26s?

Yes, they will, it will lower the sidewall, or decrease the overall diameter, and stretch out the contact patch. May sound good, but the stretching sort or deforms the tire.
Anyways, yes it can be done.

I used to mount 24's on Serpent 26mm rims..(this way they would fot my Impulse,HPi's and tc3's)..

it was all the fad 2 years ago,so i tried it..

But I forgot who it was I was talking to..(a world champion,or a tire maker,I forget all the people I know)..anyway,he said doing this causes those wear marks in tires to be worse the usual..because your still using a 24 mm insert,and THATS what doesn't sit on the rim..its to small and shifts side to side..

I started mounting them on HPI 24 mm wheels..much better results..and wear..
