    Default 35s on Mavic Open Pro rims?

    I just got a frame that can fit wider tires than I've used before and am planning on 35s. I've got wheels with narrow rims - mainly Mavic Open Pro. Will I have any problems with 35s on those rims?

    I used Open Pro rim for cross racing for many years in the 90's with 28-35 tires.

    Plus...the first MTB wheels were reshaped narrow road wheels with full on MTB tires successfully clinging to them.

    This should not be something you worry about.

    The difference between the my Mavic mountain bike rim and 2.0" tire is much greater than your Open Pro/35mm tire combination, yet with the mountain bike I experience no problems. I've also run 1.5" tires on the same rims on the road. I wouldn't worry about your combination.

    Currently training and racing on Mavic OPs with cross tires - you won't have any problems

    I've used OP's for cross tires (for a long road/gravel ride), and paselas in 32 (maybe 36). It worked fine, maybe isnt optimal but it works.

    I have a more extreme example. Have run Clement 40mm tires on an OP wheelset with no issues for 2 years now.

    Even more extreme, I run BG Rock n Roads (43) and Resist Nomad (45) on my OPs. Normally 35 Paselas. Several thousands of miles. Searching for old stock ceramic is a nasty habit of mine.

    Maybe if you stopped looking for ceramic rims you might find a turtle once in a while.
