    Campagnolo Zonda Wheel Question

    For anyone who uses a Zonda wheelset, what is the biggest tire you can mount on it? I'd like to go 36C - 37C if possible.

    I'm guessing the Zondas have a "standard" 19mm wide rim. I'm running tires that are marked 40mm (measure about 37-38mm) on 19mm wide rims without problems.

    I had no idea you could run anything that wide.

    As a ratio of tire width to rim width, it's not much different than running a 2.4" MTB tire on a 28mm wide rim. We do that all the time.

    It can be done but performance wise it could be better to use a wider rim. Especially if your airing down

    So a 35mm tire should work even on a 19mm rim.

    I run 35mm rocket Ron's on a Zonda/Ksyrium Elite wheelset with 23mm latex tubes at 35psi with no problems. 140lb race weight.

    Thanks for the input. I'm about 10 lbs heavier so weight shouldn't be an issue.
