Tubeless 25mm VS Tubeless 28,,

Hi, iím 5í5 and weight from 155 to 160 pounds.

Does my Bodyweight play an important role in selecting the correct tire... Tubeless 25 VS Tubeless 28.. which one is better? Faster? Is it worth the extra comfort of the 28mm?

tnx for your comments.

The next several comments will be people telling you that road tubeless sucks, tubes are better, and you should go tubular.

Well, I farted on their chamois. I've ran all three styles and prefer tubeless.

I currently run 28mm pro one's. Great tire, low rolling resistance, and a lot more durable than the interwebs seems to think.

I put them on because I was doing a lot of mild gravel on the road bike. Now that I have a dedicated gravel bike, I doubt I'll replace them with something as wide. 25's are usually a lot lighter, no need to get spendy to keep the weight in check.

It'll be awhile, these tires have a ton of life left in them.

As for weight, I'm 140.

Tnx for your comment... What tire presure do you use? Same in Tubeless 25ís and 28ís ??
I think Tubeless is the way to go... for lot of reasons. I currently use 25mm Tubeless, but thinking in getting a new pair of wheels.. Tubeless thats for sure, but a lot of people says that 28mm are better, but i cant find true info about that... many of them are way heavier than me.

Heavier people like myself can gain some comfort by running wider tires and keeping the pressures low enough to still absorb some road imperfections. Are you in a position to try both sizes to see which you end up liking better?

I run 80 psi.

A lot ( most) run tubeless for crappy roads or dirt and gravel. Wider makes sense there.

For road riding only, 25 is lower rolling resistance, is lighter than wide tires, and you don't have to let the air out to remove (if you have rim brakes).

I add exactly 1 ounce of orange sealant to each tire. I still haven't worked out how long before I need to top it up.

I think bodyweight matters above a certain amount. You are way below that threshold.

i agree with Farts 1st sentence. You should go tubular, for a skinny tire application of 28mm or less. For a mtb application, or with tires wider than 32 tubeless begins to make sense.

Horses for courses. Disc brakes stop better; but do you need them on a beach cruiser?

Here is a calculator so you can see the difference between the two sizes.

Entering the data is an exercise left to the user...
