In checking a little closer I noticed the new tires are 700x25. The tires that came with the bike are 700x23. How much difference between the 23 and 25? Can or should I use them or should I put them back in the box? Thanks, Larry Smith

The major differences between the 2 tires will be weight, the 25 is heavier and contact area, you'll find the 25 will corner a little more. On the straights they're going to be fairly close to the same for rolling resistance since the center tread is built up a bit. Not much reason not to go with them unless you're racing on them. TTFN
