I would say that there is no "set rule" for tires. This will depend on a few things. First what kind of riding are you doing and on what surface-for example a racing tire maybe around 20 while touring tires and cross tires are going to be wider than that. Also rider weight is important I'm a heavier rider at 175-180 lbs and you won't see me cruising around on 18's. Also your wheels are a consideration. Send in a little more info and I'd be happy to give you some suggestions.
