I recently ordered a 2015 tubular Bora set and Corsa G+. I intended to get 25s, but accidentally selected 23... I searched a fair bit but most talk is about clinchers. Buy a new set of rubber or wait to arrive and give it a try.

Thanks!

23's are not the best fit for these rims. The width at the brake track will be your widest point, leaving it quite vulnerable to damage. Also, the radius of the rim bed is designed around a 25mm tire. A smaller radius tire would tend to want to pull away at its edges. On a tubular, the edges are where you want a good strong bond. If one was going to mismatch the tire and rim combo, a slightly larger radius tire than the rim bed radius would be preferable to a tire which had a tighter radius than the rim bed.
