    okay. now that I figured out in 700x25 the 25 is milimeters I should have enough clearence to run a 30. since I have 1/2 a cm on each side that means 1 cm total so I could fit 35's if I wished.

    Remember to check for clearance on top of the tire as well. Tires have a round profile so a wider tire will also be taller... I really doubt you can fit 30s or 35s under those brake calipers.

    Cyclocross bikes have cantilever brakes and they can run wider/taller tires and not have the brakes get clogged by mud like caliper brakes will do as the muddy tire runs right under the caliper.
