Yup, the pads were a bit close when I got the bike. I moved the pads a bit away from the tire. Some of the tutorials I've seen recommending brake pad placement don't seem to account for normal sidewall bulge with some tires.

These Specialized Hemispheres have excellent tread but the sidewalls feel rather thin. I'm hoping this set will last until I can find a direct replacement, or a set of the Vittoria Randonneur RFX in something closer to 40 rather than 46 or 48.
