    Wider rims, Wider tires... Wider inner tubes?

    Hello everyone

    I have a question like that;

    I was riding on Ultegra 6700 wheelset with 21mm profile and now I have a wheelset with 18.4mm.

    Same tires differs more than 1mm when I was measuring them on the wheel.

    My question is;
    Since we are having wider tires and rims, should we get wider inner tubes or not?
    I am not sure if I have 25 or 27mm wheels with 25mm tires and 25C inner tubes will be wide enough.

    I wonder about your experiences and comments.

    Short answer is yes, your current tubes will be fine.
