Hi all am new to cycling, I have just purchased a new Giant Defy 2 Road Bike and was wondering what type of tire would be best suited for wet winter roads? Can anyone recommend a make and model?

    It depends... I've found Continental GP4000s to be a great all-year tyre.. but you may find that your local road conditions require something tougher.

    Fo winter I would go with the Continental GP 4 seasons. and the GP 4000s for summer - but also depends on road quality you generally ride on.
