    2015 SLR02 - Wide Rims?

    Hello,

    I am the very proud owner of a 2015 SLR02, and I am considering swapping out the stock RS11 wheels for some hand built Hed Belgium+ rims (25mm wide). I am worried about tyre clearance... does anyone run wide rims in their SLR?

    Thanks,

    Guy

    I have a friend with an SLR01 and he's running Zipp 303's, which are fairly wide and he's fine.

    Rims will fit fine. Tires will be roughly 3mm wider than what they are on traditional 19mm rims. 23mm tires will be around 26mm wide. 25s will be around 28mm wide.
    ... 'cuz that's how I roll.
