    25MM tires on 2014 R3

    I have checked the prior posts but wondering if anyone has had long term success putting 25MM on the front and back of their R3.

    Thanks

    Probably depends on your particular rim and tire combination. In my case, 25 mm Conti GPs on old-school, narrow Fulcrum Racing 3 clinchers are a problem. Fine on the rear wheel but too little top clearance on the front (sides are ok though). Ran 25s for a few weeks last year and ended up with a (slightly) scratched crown after a couple of wet rides. I'm now running 25 mm on the back and 23 mm on the front.

    I upgraded my 2016 R3 to some ROL Race SLRs and put some Conti GPs on them. I used 23 because I was afraid the 25s would be too wide and rub the chain stays. The 23s work fine for me but I'd like to see about 25s as well.

    I am going to swap my DT Swiss rims and new 25mm tires from My Roubaix over and see what they look like. Tried the front just now and seemed like enough clearance but it's the back that concerns me as I think that's where the frame tourques the most. Will advise and maybe take some pics and get feedback on clearance. Would love to get some 25's onboard.

    I have just put 25mm Continentals GP 4000 II with HED 25mm wheels on my R2. Only 30 miles so far but all is good. (The same combination did not clear on my S3)

    Hi Don,

    I just put 25MM on this weekend and did some climbing including out of the saddle and no issues. Front is tighter than the back clearance wise. Back has 3 mm clearance on the side and more on the top. Front has 2 mm on the side and perhaps the same on the top but less tourque strain there than the back of the frame so all seems well. Dont know if this matters but running Shim Ultegra rims. Happy to get this done... different ride already. Playing with tire pressures staring at 80PSI on front and 100 on the back. I weigh in at 250lbs .. not much fat :-) so need to keep tire pressure around 100 I think

    Several hill rides in now with some more standing and no issues on clearance or rubbing
