    Confirmation on using Ksyrium ES with Mavic Tubeless tires? (28mm)

    I've googled, and find the same threads, which don't really give me the confidence to drop $100+ on some tires yet.

    -Wheels: Mavic Ksyrium ES (google tells me there're 13mm internal width)
    -Tires: Currently 25mm Mavic Pro3, and 25mm Specialized Armadillo. Plan to switch to mavic yksion pro tubeless tire 25 or 28mm UST road tires

    My concern is that Mavic sell these new tires with the newer Ksyrium's, which are 17mm internal width, and mavic claim the rim diameter is better toleranced.

    Does anyone have experience with these combinations? Is a 13mm internal width too small for a 28, and will the Mavic tubeless tires work on the older Ksyriums (like the SL, ES etc)?

    Thanks

    I've seen 28mm tires run safely on rims with 13mm internal width. 13mm was pretty standard over a decade ago and 28mm tires existed then. It was also common to use these narrow rims with 35mm cyclocross tires.

    Yep. I have an old mountain bike with 17mm rims and 2.1 inch tires.
