25mm tyres on a Supersix?

Postby essjaydee » Fri Nov 30, 2012 07:45 am

Any supersix owners fitted 25mm tyres?

Just wondered if there is enough clearance for them?

Thanks

My colleague at work has them on his and I haven't heard him make any complaints.

Will depend to a degree on the specific tyre - not all 25m tyres are created equal plus the rim they are mounted on will affect the shape the tyre takes once inflated.

Thanks for replies :)

Am thinking of trying some Conti 4 seasons, as they get good reviews :)

I have 700x23 all seasons on a caad10 (same geo)....they are definitely larger than 700x23 4000S tyres.

I also have crudcatcher2's fitted, there is no chance I could fit these with 700x25, so consider if you are contemplating fitting temporary guards for winter.

I had a sidewall split on a 300 mile all seasons today....disappointed, not sure whether to buy another?

I wonder if that was from the same batch Cycle Surgery are selling?
