Giant SLR-0 Wheelset, what tubeless tires you running?

My 2019 Giant TCR Advanced SL-0 came with Giant SLR-0 42mm tubeless ready wheelset. The Giant Gavia AC 0 25mm tubeless tires are ok, but wondering what others are riding in a tubeless or tubeless ready tire. Thinking of trying a set of 28mm, looking for your opinions and recommendations.
Thanks!

I guess the 28 inflated to working psi would be wider than the rim width, less aero when put in front.

I think the Giant 25mm Race 0 is perfect match to that rim. I like the wheels apart from the weight (I got the SLR1 42/65).

I have the zero 30mm (selling!) - the 25mm giant tires have been great tubeless. Running them low psi but super grippy and comfy so far.

I'm running Schwalbe Pro One 25mm on my SLR-1 wheels. I didn't really like the wet grip of the Giant tyres that came with the bike.

Not sure if the frame has changed this year but 28s are a bit of a squeeze in TCRs of previous years.

jlok, how do the Race 0 differ from the AC 0 tires that came mounted on my wheels?

I have the SLR0 Climbing set and have been running the Hutchinson Fusion AllSeason.
They're a little heavy, but have more protection which I like since I typically run this setup on my endurance/looooong ride bike.
(It's also my light climbing bike (14.5lbs), but let's be honest, there's no climbs where I live.)

They are slick and slightly narrower and shorter (less tall) which possibly indicates decreased wall thickness.

ancker, are your SLR 0 wheels the 2019 42mm? Are your Hutchinson tires tubeless or tubeless ready? Do you run with sealant, what brand do you like?
Thanks

Mine are the 1330g 30mm version from 2018 I think.
Tires are "Tubeless Ready".
I'm using Orange Seal and so far no issues.

The Hutchinson Tubeless ready tires seem to be popular, were they easy to mount? Are the 25mm wide? I have also had good luck with Orange Seal sealant.
Still interested in trying a 28mm tire,hoep they fit!

I don't remember exactly. I don't think they were terrible, but really all tubeless tires are tight. At least the ones I've done.
I bought a bead jack. It gets every tire on. Once they're on the wheel for a while, ridden, etc. They're much easier to deal with.
