|Largest Size Tires that will fit on a CAAD3 with Ultegra?||Blue Crown Jewel|

|Greetings to all,
I have a CAAD3 frame that I would like to start riding when the weather is less than perfect. I thought about putting larger tires on it, something larger than 700x23. The bicycle currently has Ultegra brakes.
Can I go up to size 25 or 28? Maybe even use cross tires?
Any insights are greatly appreciated.

|But one companiy's 28's may not be quite the same width as someone else's. Sometimes you can cheat up a size by not inflating the tire until after you install the wheel.|
