    2014 Rip9 RDO just ordered new wheels worried about rim width.

    I just ordered some new custom wheels for my RDO. I ordered some Wheels Project 321 G2 quiet hubs and some Stans Flow MK3 rims. I will be running Vittoria Morsa 2.35. I'm worried about rubbing since the new rims external width is 32.3mm, and internal is 29mm. I'm coming off of some Reynolds R29AM wheels that had a 28.5mm external width, and a 23mm internal width. I don't want to rub. Am I just over thinking things. I still have time to call and change my rims. I don't want to have buyers remorse.

    I expect you should be ok. I put the Stans flow MK3 Wheelz on my wife’s 2015 Rip9 aluminum and there are no clearance issues with Nobby Nic 2.35s. Nobby nics are pretty substantial.

    I have the same rims on my 2014 RIP 9 RDO using Nobby Nic 2.25s. They would fine with plenty of clearance. Don't think the 2.35 tires will rub but if they do you can always go down to 2.25.
