Narrow tires for wide rims

It's time for a fresh front tire on my Highball hardtail. I have a 30.5mm inner-width rims on it and had it set up with really big tires. Now my pendulum is swinging the other way, towards lighter. Does anyone recommend any narrower tires (maybe a 2.1-2.3) that works particularly well for wider rims. I'm in NorCal where the terrain tends to be easier on tires than just about any place else. (Any why the heck are we measuring rim width in mm and tire width in inches?)

Imo most any 2+" tire is fine on a 30mm rim. The tire is still 2x the rim.

Get something 1-1/8" and go for the stretch look!
