Hi, I'm hoping to get a quick response to this for the weekend! :o)

I'm currently running a set of Vittoria Rubino 700 x 25 on my bike. I'm happy with them and want to stick with them, however, sliced the sidewall on one by riding somewhere i shouldn't have done. Vittoria seem to have discontinued the 25c in red and now only do a 23c in red.

My question is: Can i mix a 25c and a 23c on my bike, if so, is there a better option for which goes on the rear?

Your help will be much appreciated!

    It's fine to mix sizes - usually with the fatter tyre on the rear, as this takes more weight.
