    Hello,

    I would like to replace the tires on the set of sunrim cr18's I have. Currently they have Avocet 700X38c tires on them. I would like to replace those with the Continental Travel Contact tires but they are only available in 700X37c, apparently. Does this make any difference? Is there a similar tire that is better that anyone would suggest?
    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Phil

    Those tyres are almost exactly the same size and will fit your rims.

    No difference and great tires, the Continentals. The 37c refers to it's width.

    FWIW. In the past, I've mounted some 700x25 Michelins on some UKAI 622-17 rims ... so, your SUN CR18 rims (which I presume are 622-18) should be able to handle 700x28 without any problems (if that issue ever arises).
