I'm currently running H Plus Son Archetypes with Campagnolo Chorus Skeleton Brakes - there is roughly 1.5mm clearance between the brake pads and the rims (at most), having the calipers set as wide as they can go. I'm using the stock Campagnolo pads that come supplied with the calipers.

I've ordered some 23mm wide (same as Archetypes) carbon clincher rims, as I'm a little dubious that 25mm rims will clear the brakepads.

Is anyone here running wide (>25mm) rims with Skeleton brakes? Googling it, I can only seem to find people talking about tyre width/brake clearance, rather than rim width...

I'm running athena skeleton brakes with Velocity Dyad (24mm) rims and 28mm GP4 season rubber on my winter bike. Dual pivot front, single pivot rear. No issues, nothing fiddly in the setup.

They are older than 2015 by a few years; I'm doubtful that changes clearances much if at all.

Im also fairly certain that I have moved those wheels over to my race bike, once or twice, running chorus (dual front/rear) without anything more tricky than a simple brake adjustment.

I dont know much about campy brakes but I just bought some carbon wheel about 25mm wide rim and ultegra is providing thinner brake pads ( about 1mm thinner) koolstop is having the same option. I don't know if you can find these for campy. I know some guys does cut 1mm with an exacto ( knife) to get to the same result.

24mm wide rims with SR and Record calipers - no problem. I think it can be an issue if the rims are in the region of 27/28mm.

Agreed. Ran Record calipers with Zipp 303s and 25mm tubulars.

Thanks for the feedback all - perhaps I'm just being a bit too precious with the brakepad/rim clearance.

I have 2009 SR brakes with 25mm wide HED Ardennes+ wheels.
No issues at all with clearance using KoolStop pads.

I think there should even been room to go to a 27mm rim.

I've got 2010ish Centaur skeletons and 303 tubulars which are 26mm at the brake track.

I've also got 2014 Chorus skeletons with Archetype with no issues.

My Farsports 25mm rims arrived, and there was rub on the rear brake - however, I read the technical manual (for a set of brakes, I feel so ashamed) - turns out the 'E' screw needed to be loosened off, and it solved the problem - no more rub!

@gitsome, I'm not sure whether the E screw will have enough adjustment to accommodate 28mm rims... sorry I can't be of much more help.
