    I think you always need wider as you need clearance between tyre and guard :smile: assuming your frame has space

    If unsure get your LBS to source and fit (mudguards can be a pain if you’re not mechanically inclined and /or short of patience and easily frustrated when things don’t work immediately !)

    It is only the relatively small contact patch of the tyre which throws up water, so 47 will be more than adequate. I've used ultra narrow Salmon mudguards in the past and they were very effective.
