    Nova Special X tire width

    I have a circa 1990 Nova Special X and was wondering what the widest tires were that I could put on it. I bought it new around 1990 and still have the original Dura Ace components installed. It's been sitting around for a number of years and I want to get it going again and use it as a general purpose city bike including some light off pavement use such as greenways and dirt & gravel roads.

    Will 28's or 32's fit on it? How do you think the bike will serve in this capacity?

    Thanks

    Thought I'd share a photo in case anyone was interested. BTW, the wheels on my bike are Mavic MA 40's 32 spokes w/ 14 gauge spokes.
