Thanks Bordcla, how about the tire pressure for that measurement?

I run anywhere from 55 psi to 65 and haven't noticed a difference in tire width or height. Even at max recommended pressure of 80 psi (only to properly seat the tire at installation; I would never run them anywhere close to that hard!), I did not notice a difference in size.

I'm still 50/50 on these over my CLX64s. At what point is wide too wide.

I think I'd go ahead to order the 4.5 AR and Fusion 5 Performance TLR 28c or Pro One 28c. Hopefully they will not be wider than 31mm when mounted.

This wheelset is the best compromise between aero, weight and max air volume for me. Next best would be CLX 50 but I've tried that in the past so 4.5 AR with I9 hubs it is then. I like the orange anodized color to match my bike.

I’m using 28c Pro One with 4.5 AR disc. I think it is wider than 31mm.

Finally got to try the 4.5 AR. 30mm G-One Speed measured 31.5 and 30.7 F/R @50psi. I could slip a 3mm Allen key at chainstay so the clearance is acceptable to me. Order it right away!

Not sure where the doubt comes from. The article specifically refers to the 4.5 ARs in more than one spot.

yes, they will make mistake. Rear wheel decal of my friend's 4.5 AR is wrong. It's from PWB.

The 4.5 AR rear rim profile is relatively sharp in SES series, with the hookless walls it can't be mistaken lol
