Tyre query

Postby benvrackie » 8 Aug 2019, 11:04am

Decided to swap out 23 x 700 for 25s only to discover that the front tyre is in contact with the fork at the top. So obviously can't go above 23s. Question - is there any problem running with 25 back 23 front ? Tyres are Swalbe Durano.

However, you might want to consider other 25 mm tyres. I mention that because the Durano is thick at the tread area and therefore tall. Besides, the Durano is a tough old boot and often people seek wider tyres for comfort. For comfort you can do better.
