I got some rims from a friend and I would like to know what tires will fit on those rims. Is there any number in the rim that specifies the tire size and type?

Round ones! *rim shot*

Are there numbers on the rims? You're the one looking at them...
If not, break out a measuring tape and measure them.
Can you post pics? Did your friend tell you what they came off of?
What are you trying to put them on?

Yeah I should have checked, numbers on the front rim are 1.85x19 and the rear has numbers and letters J16xMT3.00

I was wondering, if I put them on a Yamaha xs650 hardtail (hardtail from tc bros) will the rear be too low? The look im trying to get is the front end higher than the rear end. Also, according to those numbers and letters, what tires should i get.

Thanks again

100/90/19 and 130/90/16 should work

Pick a tire and go to the manufacturer website. Look up the specs for the sizes you need. Outside Diameter will be listed along with all the other relevant dimensions...including rim diameter and width.

and if the front end isn't high enough, get some over length front forks.

I got the bike with 100/90-19 front and 4.00H 18 K112A rear, they both look the same but when I got the bike I got extra rims with it that fit the same frame and those rims are the one I want on my bike, rear is 16" and front is 19" and they look like this :

and the bike came like this :
