    35mm tires on Aksium race wheels?

    I recently got a set of Mavic Aksium wheels and noticed the max tire size is 32mm. Would I anger the wheel gods if I put a 35mm tire on them? I use this bike for commuting and such. Thanks for the help!

    Probably depends on the tire, but I've used continental Race King and schwalbe Racing Ralph, both 35 cyclocross tires, on my Aksiums w/ no probs.

    I've used 35mm tires on my hed bastogne wheels for winter commuting and I really doubt that's something they'd recommend.

    Plenty of cross bikes come with Aksiums stock- with tires from 32 to 35c. It's not a problem.

    I emailed HED about the Ardennes, which should be the same, and was told they are good from 22mm to 52mm.

    Thanks for all the replies. I will roll the 35c.
