hello
i'm using sram force22 groupset
and looking for reynolds aero46 wheels.

As you know well, rim width of aero46 i 26.2mm and internal is 16mm.
i'm wondering whether force22 brake is able to run 26.2mm width of wheel,
and limit of width.

Do i have to replace brake to ulte or red?

I used to run 25mm wide rims in my Force22 brakes and I run the pads quite far from the rim. Don't think 26mm would be a problem. Or even wider, with thinner pads.

I am running Force 22 brakes with Easton EA90 SLX wheel with 17.5mm internal width, I forgot whats the outer rim width is. I pair the wheels with Michelin Pro4 endurance v2 25mm tires, the tires width measure a little over 28mm after inflation. When I take off the wheels, I need to tap them a little for the tires to clear the pads. but its not too bad.

I'm running them with Easton EC90 Aero 55mm tubs with a break track at about 28mm apart and they (just) manage.

I am running force22 brakes w/ the Roval 64s. They have an external width of 29.9mm. I cannot open them any further and would say that this is the absolute limit on rim width and believe I am outside the manufacturer's specs.
