Proper rim size for tire

I’m repairing the rusted wheels on a A3 Bullet and the tires are 16x2.25. I purchased new chrome rims that are 36 spoke 2.1x16 and they are slightly wider then the original rims. 1.75 vs 2.1. Will the old 2.25 tires work on this new rim?

Yes

If the rim is bad enough to be replaced I'm sure that tire on it is dry rotted to shit and road rash waiting to happen

yep, but you should buy new tires. take advantage of the wider internal rim width and buy 2.5" tires if they'll fit the swing arm.
