Question...I'm new to track cycling and just ordered my first set of Carbon CSC track wheels in a 25mm width, tubular. Would it be an issue if I run 23mm tires? I've heard good things about the Vittoria Corsa Speed tires and wanted to order some in a 23mm. Just want to know if that would be an issue? thanks in advance.

should be fine overall, may want to be a little extra careful when mounting to get them centered is all

After how many kilometres should you start to think about replacing a Vittoria PistaSpeed tubular on a rear wheel? Sounds silly but because the tyre is smooth, Iím unsure how much it has worn.

Ridden on an indoor wooden track.

Thanks!

I would replace when you get a flat spot round the circumference.

For a tire in that scenario (indoor, presumably pretty nice track surface but a fragile tire) your eyes will likely be the best determiner. Every few sessions give it a good inspection, looking for any nicks in the tread, and also inspect the sidewall for any wear/damage, and as above, flat spots. In my experience with the really nice tires, it's usually one sudden event that ends it's life, not a gradual wear down, but of course ymmv.

Just make sure the glue job is still good. A tire will last a good long time if used only indoors.
