What differnce does size of tyre make?
Like is it differnt for flat and climbing.
Ive go some Bontrager select 700c x 25c still because i couldnt be bothered to get some new ones.

    25mm is fine for most road use, it'll be more comfy, have better grip, and be a bit less liable to flat than a narrower tyre

    better quality tyres may be lighter and/or grippier
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    It depends what you want to use it for. I prefer Continental GP4000 s. Great tyre with good compromise between speed and durability.
