Need some wider tires and fenders on my Dawes!

Looking to replace the 25c tires on my dawes streetfighter. I want to run the biggest tire size possible, that are good for light touring and also daily commuting, while also being able to have full fenders. Anyone have an idea how big of tire I can go with fenders? Any suggestions on which tires and fenders to go with would be much appreciated too! Thanks!

You can figure this out yourself by measuring how much clearance you have with your current tires. Add another centimeter to allow clearance for fenders. I recommend SKS (Esge) plastic fenders.
