Mavic 700 Open Pro Clinchers and 700 x 25 tireslinguinee

Hello again. A quick question: Are 25 width tires acceptable on a Mavic (700) Open pro Rims? Mavic's Open Pro webpage specifies that the appropriate range of tire widths for the 700 Open Pro vary from 19 - 23 mm.

thank you

In a nutshell.

I run Avocet Cross K's - 700/32's on my Open pro's, but they are actually 27's. Which tells you that most manufacturer's tires are skinnier then they are supposed to be so as to get them at the weight their supposed to be. Thus the chances are your 25's may actually be 23's

Yea, they will work just fine. I run 700x30c on the open pros on my cross bike and have never had any problems with fit. You will be fine.
