comment Sourcing wheels for hybrid bike
It sounds like your primary concern is running narrow tires. If that's the case and it were me, I'd just throw some 23s on and see what happens before I spent a chunk of change on a new wheelset. As Sheldon notes, those charts are conservative. At worst, you start getting more pinch flats. But considering the cost of a wheelset, it's a cheap experiment.
