Tires and Fenders

How wide of a tire can you run with 700c tires with 35mm fenders.

I just installed a set of Planet Bike Hardcore Road fenders on my bike last night and they are 35mm fenders. Planet Bike recommends up to a X28 tire for this size fender..... Hope this helps.

a general rule of thumb is you want 10mm clearance between the tire and the fender.

you can maybe squeeze a 28mm in there, but i had sks p35 fenders, and that was pretty tight. the planetbike might be more forgiving.
