    Hi!

    I just bought my first set of carbon wheels (Neuvation C50 clinchers). I'd like to put on a set of 700x28 Grand Bois tires at about 95psi, figuring that the increased air volume will give me a smoother ride and reduce the risk of bottoming out the rims.

    I'm a larger rider (210 pounds). Is there any problem with running a large tire on carbon rims? They should fit fine in my frame.

    The 28mm will work, but it will have a pretty big impact on the aerodynamics of your rims......if that's a concern for you.
