Can two official size NBA basketballs fit through an regulation rim at the same time?

The inside diameter of a regulation rim is 18 inches. A regulation NBA basketball is between 29 1/2 to 29 7/8 inches in circumference, equating to a diameter of 9.39 to 9.51 inches, or an average of 9.45 inches. Now is where simple math will tell you that they won't fit, but both are able to compress over 1/2 inch each with minimal force, leaving you with a tightly fitting yet extremely possible attempt at making two basketballs at the same time. Conversely, you can take two basketballs placed side by side and place them on the top cylinder of the rim and make them not go through.

Can two basketballs fit through one rim?

I don't pretend to have all the answers, but during my days of learning fundamentals, we were taught/showed numerous times, (during B'ball camp) Coach Stan Kelner's program called the Cybernetics of B'ball, which it was repeatedly stated, in fact, that was how they determined the size of the 'basket'...but putting two balls aside each other. The "nominal" diameter of a standard basketball is 9 inches. Therefore, "forcing" is not needed, the weight of the balls themselves allows them to pass through, but again, are they new, old, cold, hot, wet, dry? Too many questions to waste time arguing.yes actually it can. my teacher even tried it and it worked. so HAHAH yerr wrong!!!thanksbyeeYou're teacher "trying" it doesn't fully answer the question. The circumference of a basketball is 29-30 inches, making the diameter 9.39-9.55 inches. The inside diameter of a basketball rim is 18".Thus, your teacher could force the balls through, but they would not fit on their own.

Will a 16575R15 tire fit on a rim that had a 13575R15 tire on it?

No, unfortunately, the rim will not fit that tire. This is because these two tires require different sized rims. One of these needs a?æ16-inch rim while the other needs a 14 inch rim.
