Do you mean you currently have 25mm tires and want to run 23mm tires?

Then its a matter of the rims you have. However if you have 25mm tire now you should stick with them as they have lower rolling resistance thanthe 23mm tires.

What is your reasoning for wanting to go from 25mm to 23mm tires? What wheels do you have?

Sorry, I should have explained... I have 23mm wheels and 23mm tires right now...I'm getting new wheels that are 25mm... Just wondering if I need to get new tires as well.

25mm tires will fit on your rims, but you have tp make sure you have enough clearance in the bike frame. Most road bike have the clearance for 25mm tires. If you have a tri bike, most can handle the 25mm tires but require some adjustment to the horizontal stops for the rear wheel.

Hi 

you will need to check with your wheel builder, as some of the new wheels built for 25mm don't safely take 23mm tyres

My back wheel needs to be trued up. It has a slight side-to-side wobble, and I feel at times like I'm going to lose control when I ride. Is this something that I should only trust to my LBS to do?

The wheels are my first area of concern and I have started to shop around. I find it nauseating to think of spending the same amount for wheels as my bike. Any help?

This article estimates how much time can be saved in sprint races by converting from stock aero wheels found on most tri bikes to more aero disk and composite spoked wheels.
