Hi just got a TCR Advanced SL 2 2016 and its awesome, but want to put on wider tyres ? I think I want to go really wide, whats the widest tyre I can fit?

The rims are advertised as

Giant SLR 1 DBL WheelSystem; 30mm deep, 23mm wide, Full composite


I've got a 23 on there atm, could I get a 28 or 30 on there ?

Ps. this is interesting listening on how people are rethinking high pressure, narrow tyres .... Most of the pros are on 25's.

i would guess you might fit *some* 28s on, but better to find a 'big' 25.

It sounds like an ERTRO 17 rim, meaning the inner width is 17mm's. Given your bike is a recent model 25's wil usually fit and some 28's will work too.

A photo of the current clearance at it's smallest would help though. Also choosing which tyres you want to run. Michelin Pro4 will stretch whereas the Power's don't.
