Oval Concepts 327 wheelset - clincher tyre recommendations
 
Specifically, how ´wide´ should I go? The rim is 22mm wide, so towards the bigger end of modern clincher wheelsets.

I also have a set of Felt TTR2 wheels, which are apparently 19.4mm wide at the rim. Is there a recommended may width for cyclocross-specific tyres with this kind of standard road rim?

Thanks in advance, apologies for the newbie-type question.

Yes, you could fit just about any tire from 700x23 to 700x40. Frame or fork clearance might limit you to 700x35 or 700x38, depending on the bike.

I ended up with a pair of Michelin TransWorld Sprint, in 37/622, which were cheap and should get me started. They went on easily enough, the build continues!
