Best tire size for 700c wheels
I just got a brand new '06 Bianchi Axis which I am going to use as a commuter bike to start with. The stock tires (WTB Cross Wolf, 700x32C) aren't going to cut it for that purpose. I was thinking of getting something even wider than 32C but the rims are pretty damn skinny. They are Alex 320 rims
They are labeled 622 x 14 (14 is the inner width?) Am I asking for trouble if I use 37c tires on these?
I know this gets covered now and then but I haven't found anything definitive. Well, maybe this one
, but there must be other opinions out there.
