25 contis tend to measure out more like a 28mm tire, especially on a wide rim (which I assume your zipps are on the wide end of the spectrum)

Try a different brand tire or a different width tire, I don't see that you have much of an alternative. Michelin tires also tend to portliness, btw

Yes, you can put 23s on there and the rubbing will go away. FHE

23mm tires will be probably fit and definitely be more aero at higher speeds.
