I have plenty of clearance on the front to run whatever size tire I want but the rear is another story.
A while back I mounted a 25mm tire to my 19mm rim and it rubbed the frame. I had room on the sides of the tire but the tire contacted the at the middle of the tread.
I'v been stuck with 23mm tires but I'm getting ready to replace my wheels and am looking at my rim options right now.
I'm wondering if I mounted a 25mm tire to a wide 23mm rim would this reduce the height of the tire? I figure the side walls are being spread out so it seems like the tires total height would be reduced.
The 25mm tire that rubbed was a Conti 4000s.
