Hello, I am new to mountain biking and am deciding to replace the tires on my bike. The dimensions on my current tires say : 52-584 (650x52B) (27.5x2.10)

I have found some new tires I like that read (27.5x2.50WT).

Will these new tires fit on my bike?

650B and 27.5" are two different ways of naming the same 584mm diameter rim. The tire should fit on the rim. x2.5 WT tires are designed to be used with modern bike rims that have an internal width around 29-35 mm, give or take. x2.1 tires are pretty narrow, which suggests the rims might be pretty narrow too. If you have narrow rims, it might give you tires that are more rounded and less squared off than is ideal. You'll also want to take a look at your current frame and fork to make sure there's plenty of room to accommodate wider tires.
