Widest tire on Giant TCX?

What is the widest 700c/29" tire you can mount on a 2019 Giant TCR Advanced Pro? I would love to use the Panaracer Gravel King SK 43mm tires on this bike.

I've read that 45mm is the limit, although the front could probably take 50mm. You should be able to do 43mm. I have not put anything on bigger than 40mm. I would love to put something like the Sim Works Homage 43mm or WTB Riddler 45mm on some day.

I've seen gravelking 650x48's mounted on TCX. Not sure about the TCR.

My rim caliper TCR is limited to 25mm tires
So I assume 43mm 700c tires should fit?
