I recently picked up a Specialized Cross Roads cross bike and set it up as a commuter bike for my nephew. Unfortunately, it came with some wide touring-style rims with 700C X 38 tires. I have a set of old 700C X 25 tires sitting around that I have put onto these Araya rims (I think they're 22mm wide on the inside) and the tires pumped up just fine. They look weird because the tire is about as wide as the outside of the rims.

Is this safe to ride on? When these tires wear out I plan on getting a set of 28 or even 32mm tires for this bike.
