Bike tyres

I hope someone can help me out here. My road bike needs new tyres (first time!) and they currenlty have Vittoria Competion tyres on 700 x 22C.

I have looked online and most road bike tyres are 700 x 23 - will these fit. I can't seem to find 700 x 22 tyres. Are they an old size or something.



  • 23c refers to the width of them, the standard is 23, I think you can even go down to 18 but these are very thin (obviously) and not a comfortable ride........although thinner is faster but probably talking milliseconds !!
  • oh sorry, so I meant to say yes you can use the 23's on your wheels

    I'd imagine 18 would be slower at my level, I know my steed of steel isn't exactly built for a plush ride, but sticking 18's on would be crucifying...
