    23mm tire on 25mm rim

    im thinking about getting a 25mm carbon wheel but i have 4 new 23mm gatorskins tires. will i be able to put them on the 25mm rim? if i can would it defeat the purpose of have a 25mm rim?

    Not sure. But speaking of defeating the purpose......you're getting carbon rims (presumably to eek out a small fraction of speed with aero) and want the use gatorskins on them?

    If gatorskins are the appropriate for your riding chance are carbon clinchers aren't.

    I think they do most of the aero testing on the fat carbons with 23's. they'll damn sure fit
