New tires

Postby YiannisM » Sun Sep 08, 2019 17:53 pm

Hey guys, i need your advice for new tires. I ride around 5-6000km per year, 90% on dry. For several years i was very happy with conti GP4000 S2. In general other than today that i have 3 punctures, i usually get like once in a year. So the bar is those tires. Most important for me is the grip and the comfort. Puncture protection has to be on the lvl of the 4000, same as the durability.

My short list

1A)Continental GP 5000
1B)Pireli velo.


3)Vittoria Corsa Control. Those just for the stripe on side, it looks really nice on my Bianchi.

So what do you suggest? I am also open to other options too.

Well if you tyres with the durability of the gp4000 your not setting the bar very high.

Given the hot weather here i need to change tires every year even if they are not wear out, thats why is not very important for me.

I've only had the Vittoria's, but do fine them very soft so you may find you get a bit more in terms of punctures. Still lovely tires though they are on my "best" wheels.
In terms of others. Well I run vittoria rubino pro most of the time (the tan walls are only for dry fast rides) and Michelin Pro4 Endurance which. Of the two I prefer the Pro's, they are tough as old boots but still grip well.
