These tires DO NOT measure up! The sidewall imprint says they are 44mm, and they are.

I know they are sold as 47mm tires. I know the packaging says they are 47mm tires. But the carcass imprint says these are manufactured as 44mm tires - and that's what they are. 44mm wide, even on a wide rim. THESE TIRES ARE NOT 47mm wide. These tires get great reviews. I bought them on short notice for my A gravel race of the year. But, if anything, I wanted more than 47mm. I couldn't be more disappointed.
