    It means there is clearance for large CX(cyclocross) tires. "high profile tubs" basically means tubular cyclocross tires, which have knobby tread and are wider and taller than road tires.

    At that tension, I would think you are going to see cracks around the drive side spoke holes in the rim fairly soon. I would lower the tension of the whole wheel.
