Hi guys

I have a 2014 Genesis Croix de Fer with stock wheels. The rims are Alex XD-Lite 32H Disc.

I currently use 28mm rubino pro tyres with no issues. Is there a minimum width I can use? Would 25mm be ok?

Cheers in advance

    The rims are 18mm width, so 25mm tyres are fine

    Thanks for the reply. Am I right in thinking that at 18mm rims, 25mm is the narrowest? Don't think I'd want narrower on this bike just curious really.

    23's will work as well, personally if 28mm fits, them use those, you get all the comfort for the same speed
