With a Paul Racer M, I have 13-14mm clearance with a 32mm tire, minus the fender thickness. I figure thatís probably sufficient. With a 35mm tire itís probably getting a little close.

Fork clearance is about 12mm with 32ís minus the fender. Thatís at the front of the crown, at the rear itís significantly more. ( Canít measure it at this moment)
