Hello, guys.
I am interested in one of the old zero gravity ciamillo brakes on ebay. ...
I wonder if I can use 25c tyres on my 25mm external/17mm internal width rim,
Thanks! :D

I can fit 25 actual tyres in my -G brakes, which definitely have less clearance than those ones you're looking at. 25c tyres on a rim that wide that you've chosen are going to balloon pretty big, so perhaps consider using 23c for better rolling resistance and tyre clearance.

By the way, that price is pretty high for used Ciamillos, especially given that they're the ugly white/black ones, just sayin' :wink: .
