Tyre size check

Quick bit of advice if folks out there have a couple of minutes.
I'm looking to put new tyres on my Mavic Kysrium Elites. I currently use 25, but am looking to go to 28 if possible. I've measured the rim width (see photo - looks like 17mm inner width)

and checking the Mavic website I'm thinking 28 tyres will be fine. Just looking to see if anyone can confirm or advise otherwise.
Cheers folks👍

    28s will be fine.

    I’ve used 28’s on my Ksyrium Elites since new with no problem. Just make sure there’s sufficient frame and brake bridge clearance (There should be on most newer frames and brakes).

    Thanks for the swift feedback. Good point about the clearance - I'll double check before ordering. Thanks again :)
  • Amazing!
