I use 25mm tyres
Do not underestimate the rims on which the tyres are fitted.
This new fashion of wide rims on road bikes is leaving some people with unacceptable clearance with frames & forks. Not only the tyres are wider, but some road brake calipers would have reduced height when working on rims wider than what they were designed for
I've seen a few since the who have fitted a wider tyre and rim on a bike that can't cope with it. Many modern carbon frames have quite large chainstays which result in tight clearances, on some the tyre had cut into the stays, on one bike right through!
