Conti Touring Plus sizing??

Hi,

Is it true that the Continental Touring Plus tires are cut small, so that the 32mm actually
is more closer to a 28mm of other brands??

Thanks

I had a set of the 700X32 Conti Touring Plus, and that's the exact conclusion I came to - when I installed them they were actually closer to 26mm, but they flattened out to around 28mm after breaking in.

As to whether they'd fit on a road bike without much tire clearance, I can't say for certain - but they were pretty tough tires. Comparable to the Specialized Armadillo Nimbus that I'm running now in terms of flat resistance.

Hope that helps

Seth
