Has anyone tried 25mm tires on a 2008-9 CerveloR3 frameset?

They fit on my 2007 R3. I ran Conti Gatorskin hardshell for a little while with no problems

It'll clear the frame no problem but the fork is tighter (depends which fork you have).

It will depend on the rim. 25s fit with no problems on my '07 R3 when mounted on a narrow rim. Mounted on a wide rim like a Zipp 303, 25s rub front and rear.

I have a set of Michelin pro optima 25's on a set of campy neutrons on my R3 and they fit easily. The fork was a cervelo one from the original R2.5 tho. Ride is very good adding to the already smooth ride of the R3. No noticeable decline in performance and run a slightly lower pressure

Sorry to bring up an older thread - thought it would be better to add to this one instead starting a separate one. Didn't see much mentioned about clincher rim width. Anyone run 25mm tires on 23mm wide rims (C2's, Archetypes, TB14's, etc.) on their older R3 (before the geometry changes)? Looking to possibly pick up an older 2007 R3, but all I run are Vittoria and Veloflex 25mm clinchers on wide rims.
