    R3 + Zipp 303's -- tire recommendation?

    Wondering if anyone has experience with this combo? Looking for the widest tire I can reasonably run. Currently running Conti Gatorskin 25's on RS80's with no problem. (And will keep this combo for my favorite local hilly/unpaved routes). Just picked up a pair of 303's for longer, flatter, straighter rides, but would like to keep as much of the comfort of the 25's if I can. But I also want to maintain the aero design integrity. I understand that there are some 23 tires that are a bit wider than labeled, but not quite 25's.

    I'm 6'2" and 180, and don't sprint out of saddle, etc.

    Thanks in advance for any info or insights.

    Try the conti Force/Attack combo. 22 mm in front for aero, 24 mm in back for comfort and traction. I've got them on my FC 303's and they feel great.

    I know a person that has 303 FC's with 25c GP4k's...and he's got rub marks on the inside of his seat stays.

    Michelin Pro4 service course. I ride with 23s on both 303s and on Enve 3.4. Comfort is great on both.
