Commuting tyre width

Postby gixernick » Fri Jan 11, 2013 19:04 pm

I've recently had to change the route of my commute and the state for the roads is shocking with potholes and such. I currently have 23 mm tyres on Aksium rims and would like larger ones. How much difference would I see for 28mm tyres (yes 5mm, I know) would there be much benefit.
Also what is the widest one that would fit under my Crud Raceguards?

23 to 28 should make a noticeable difference - you could drop the pressure quite a bit. However you will struggle with anything bigger than 23mm under Raceguards. If you've got clearance for 28mm tyres, can't you fit proper guards?

Aaaahhh that answers the question I've only got clearance for 28mm tyres.
Thanks
