just bought a pair of these and it recommends using 25mm tyres. I don't have much tyre clearance on my current wheels with 23mm tyres . do the wider rims on the fulcrums mean there is a wider tyre and so reduces the depth of the tyre and therefore the clearance needed. don't want to splash out on new tyres if they wont fit.

    I ran 23s (Vitoria Rubino Pro) on my 5's and they were fine. My new Conti GP4000s ride much nicer though...
    Condor Super Acciaio, Record, Deda, Pacentis.
    Curtis 853 Handbuilt MTB, XTR, DT Swiss and lots of Hope.
    Genesis Datum Gravel Bike, Pacentis (again).
    Genesis Equilibrium Disc, 105 & H-Plus-Son.

    Mostly Steel.

    Why not fit one of your existing 23mm tyres to the Fulcrum rim, you can then measure the tyre profile and fork/frame clearances. You can use 23mm tyres on those rims if you don't have sufficient clearances for 25mm tyres, however the recommendation with many of the wider, (17mm I.D./23/24/25mm E.D.) wheel rims seems to be to use 25mm tyres minimum.
