    What's the largest size tire I can fit on a Mavic Open Pro Rim?

    What's the largest size tire I can fit on a Mavic Open Pro Rim? Does anyone know if 37s' or 32s' will fit? Thanks.

    Mavic web site lists up to 28mm and gives a max pressure of 117 psi with that tire.

    I've been running 35mm Cyclocross tires on mine at about 80psi for several years now.

    I would think that would give the tire a weird shape, and maybe weird handling.

    I commuted on 32's on OP's for over a year and had no problem whatsoever. Thats probably as big as I would run on them however. But, again the bike handled perfectly with no ill effects that I noticed.

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
