Largest Size Tires that will fit on a CAAD3 with Ultegra?(4 posts)

Largest Size Tires that will fit on a CAAD3 with Ultegra?Blue Crown Jewel
Jun 26, 2002 6:54 AM
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.

Kind regards,
Dimitri

28mm is a good rule of thumb.Spoke Wrench

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.
