28 mm tyres on Shimano DA 9000 C35 CL

Post by slogfester » 29 Aug 2016 07:16

Anyone running 28 mm tyres on Shimano DA WH-9000 C35 CL wheels?

My understanding is that, although Shimano tech says they are suitable for 23-28 mm tyres, the C35 have a 15 mm inner rim width, which leaves me wondering about the handling when fitted with 28 mm tyres.

Would like to upgrade wheels on my new steed (Trek Domane SLR). Looking for mid-profile alu rim carbon clinchers. Suggestions welcome.
(I might have a [recovering] buggered back, but I still want to go fast :)

Thanks, and greetings from DownUnder
