Hi just fitted some 400011s tyres to my caad 10 problem is it is very close to the top of the forks, I would say about 2mm clearance from tyre to fork. I am guessing this is dangerous so can someone advise on a good tyre that come in smaller. This is my wet weather bike so would like to go with 25mm if possible
Many thanks

    What are 400011s?
    If you mean Continental GP4000's then almost anything comes up smaller for a claimed size - they always seem to come up a couple of mm larger than quoted.

    If 25mm are too big try 23mm ?

    23mm (which will come up big) GP4000 II on the front and 25 on the rear?

    Only need to buy one more tyre and have a spare for the rear then.
