    This one, correct? https://bikerumor-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/S2-3-4-105-600x300.jpg I have a 2015 S3 with 28mm external carbon rims and 25mm Continental GP5000 clinchers (not tubelss) with no issues at all. I previously had 25mm Continental GP Forces on the same wheels, and the rear would rub occasionally on the seat stays. The fork on the S2 is different so I can't comment directly, but I have zero issues on the front. Thanks, -Wes

    For reference, here is the rim that I am using. It looks like the HEDs are 21mm internal, which will make a give section width tire wider than my 19.5mm internal rims.

    I don't know the actual section widths on Gatorskins, but you might be OK/might not. A 23mm tire seems awfully narrow going onto a 21mm internal width rim.

    It really depends on what tires you use. Continental 4000 S 2 has a section width of 25mm on the HED wheels. On my S3 that is what I ran. Continental 25mm tires rubed the chain stay. They measured about 28mm. I can measure them tomorrow. I have a S2 build that I am doing right now with HED's on it. I will post some pictures tomorrow.
