Recently got a set of 4.5's, which I'm really pleased with. I'm currently running 23 conti 4k's on both front and back, but given the width of the front rim, I'm thinking that 25 front and 23 back would be a better combination. Enve advise 23 on both but the rim is wider than the front tyre when fitted, it doesn't look like a clean flow to my eye.

Any thoughts or advice?

i have 25mm tires Schwalbe One's fitted on...but having clearance problems with the fork when its wet out and the tire picks up a few small rock chips...i can hear it it the top of my fork. i have to go down to 23mm tires just in the front. the back looks to be okay. i don't have the issue that the rim is wider that tire with the 25mm...but will put 23mm on soon.

Enve recommend 23 or 25 for those wheels. Looking at the Q&A on their site they only seem to be advising 23 instead of 25 for people who's bikes won't fit 25...

Interesting. Do you have a link to the q&a? I couldn't see on their website. Thanks
