    They'll fit. What kind did you get?

    When I swapped the 'cross tires on my San Jose for narrower road tires, I picked up speed and a much quieter ride.

    Use Maxim PSI to prevent Pinched Flats.

    They'll fit ok. You might find the ride isn't as cushy. Just watch out for pinch flats when riding up gutters etc.
