    Stan's Raven 700 x 35 cross tire on Flow EX rim?

    This is kind of an off the wall question but has anyone run the Raven 700 x 35 tire on Flow EX rims? I have a set of Flow EX wheels and would like to mount some cross tires for gravel road adventures but I am not sure if it will work. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Haven't tried it but I've never had issues running tires that are wider than the rim they are mounted on. For instance I have run 32c tires on 28mm wide rims with no issues.

    It works ok as long as I keep the pressure below 35psi. Above that they will blow off of the rims. I only ran them a couple of times on the flow rims and decided to go back to Kenda Happy Medium 700x40. They woked much better.
