I have an older bike, a cross/hybrid that I had new parts swapped onto before I got my Trek. At the time I opted for road wheels--622x15--and ran 23-25mm tires on those.

So these days I've been wondering how big a tire might fit on those wheels. 28mm should be okay, but how about 32mm? There's plenty of clearance, I'd just want something that'd handle well and not be a mismatch.

Also, tho I've seen some reviews and pointers to road tire evaluations, could anyone suggest/recommend something in one of those larger sizes? I don't need much tread (smooth, w/low resistance), also 'panku-nikui' would be good.
