Road Tires: Actual Widths On LB Rims

These rims are available in rim brake or disc brake versions and are either in clincher or tubular format. Outer widths range from 25mm to 26.5mm, making them ideally suited to 21c to 28c tires (wider is possible). With a wide range of depths ranging from 25mm to 88mm, you can build up climbing, track, crit, triathlon or a mid-depth aero wheel for fondos. With a rounded profile, they are stable and easier to control in crosswinds.

Note: The above table is based on measurements taken with tires inflated to 60psi. All tires are installed with a tube. If absolutely required when mounting tires, use sturdy plastic tire levers as metal ones can damage your rim and tape.

If I'm reading this correctly, a 700 x 28 tire will balloon out past the sides of a 28mm rim. So if you wanted the maximum aerodynamic benefit while riding a 700 x 28 tire, you should put it on a 30mm rim. Is that accurate?

Hi Sir, Yes, the wheel width has to be slighter wider than tire width. Then it will get better aerodynamic on road wheels 700C. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Dear, I'm looking for some carbon wheels, rim brake. Height about 50-55cm. I'm happy with Novatec hubs and Sapim spokes. I'm about 94kg and I ride a Cannondale CAAD12. I ride about 10.000 a year including amateur races. What can you recommend? Furthermore I have a Canyon Speedmax 8.0, but have no disc wheel yet, do you sell disc wheels? Best regards, Hans de Boer The Netherlands 06-30342632

Hi Hans, Do you use 25C or 28C tires? We can check which rim brake and disc wheels 700C are better for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Have you tried the Continental GP5000 700x25c on the R65 hook? If so, how does this measure on the rim? Best, Simon


LightBicycle 2020/06/06

Hi Simon, Yes, we did test the R65 with GP 5000 25c tires. The results are the same as other 25mm wide rims on the first page. The tires are challenging because of the stiff bead. We used 2 tire levers. But it varies from different builders. We did have some customers think that GP5000 25c tires are easy to mount on. Jernej who rides our R45 (25mm wide, 45mm deep) rim runs Continental GP5000 25C without any problem. https://www.lightbicycle.com/storytelling/Jernej-Aero-Wheels-Really-Changed-My-Racing-Experience Thanks, Lightbicycle

Have you tried the Continental GP5000 700x23c on the R55 rims?


LightBicycle 2020/08/29

Hi Victor, We haven't tried Continental GP5000 700x23c on the R55 rims 700C road. But some of our customers do use 23C tires on our R series rims. It is okay. Thanks, Lightbicycle
