A friend has a close to top of the range Dawes
hybrid which has 700x32 tyres on Alex rim wheels.

They are heavy cross country tyres and not suitable for long
Treks keeping up with three others on light weight race bikes.
With slick tires.

What would you recommend for a road tyre and what size can
I go down to I.e 700 x 25

No idea what to get for him

    as long as the rim is no wider than 25mm then i think 25mm tyres will be ok.
