Hi
Looking recommendations for 29er tyres with good puncture protection and good rolling resistance as goes for mtb tyres. The tyres I have are basically rubbish and forever puncturing.
I mostly run on the road and do some gravel so something in between road/gravel would be great instead of the full knobblys.
Got a £50/60 budget or maybe a little more.
TIA

    You asked the same question on two separate occasions last year but didn't reply to the responses you got!

    Continental Race King and going tubeless to reduce the chance of flats was one suggestion and consider changing to narrower road or gravel tyres was another.

    Depending on the internal width of your rims I'd look at changing to gravel tyres in 38 or 40mm width. Have a read through THIS ARTICLE and see if anything takes your fancy.

    What rims are currently on your bike?

    Yeah just noticed that after I posted... Completely forgot about it tbh with being busy at work.
    Ordered the race Kings so hopefully they will do the job

    Go tubeless and with sealant in the tyres. It won't stop punctures, but it will stop flats!
