    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.
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    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!
