Mavic open pro rims with 35mm tyres

Been looking at mavics website and they recommend a maximum tyre width of 28mm for the open pros but I would like to mount 35mm cx tyres to them, I have mavics on my mtb and they recommend a max width of 2.1 but theres no probs with 2.35's so I'm hoping the same applies here.

    Not sure, the open pro is quite narrow...

    I have run 38mm WTB tyres on an Open Pro and have had no problems - but you are right on the limit as wider tyres simply pop-off. A lot comes down to the shape of the tyre bead so until you actually try it, hard to say.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
