New tyres, which ones?

Hi, I am fairly new to road cycling and bought a 2nd hand bike last March. It had some Hutchignson folding tyres on it which I can't source, as they wore out I bought some Michelin Orium tyres . I have ridden the bike 60 miles since then and had 2 punctures :evil: I never had any with the old tyres.

Please can someone recomend some thing that is not so puncture prone? I am quite heavy so something where I can run approx 110 psi would be good.

Many Thanks
Amy

    Michelin Krylion Carbons.

    Use the search facility and you will find lots of good tyre advice in past threads that will help you.
  • Continental GP4000s are good.
    I ride on very rural roads, and puncture resistance and hard wearing are important to me.

    I use GP4000, the 25mm ones. They're no slower (i've won races on them), but you get a little more comfort.

  • Thanks I will have a look at those.

    ( the search on here is rubbish and this is the 5th time I have tried to post it is going so slowly.)

    Thanks Amy

    I'm on these aswell and have not had one puncture since October, I am on old wheels but they are very fast.
  • Conti GP or Conti Gator Skin for great puncture-proofness :) (probably just jinxed my next ride!) :roll:
