So I've narrowed down my search for the perfect Road tire. The choices here are popular among cyclists and are often mentioned on this board.
1. Vittoria Rubino Pro III Fold Tire
>Current AMZ Price 700x25c: $29
2. Michelin Pro4 Endurance Tire
>Current AMZ Price 700x25c: $45 - $49
3. Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II Road Clincher (Often referred to as Conti GP 4000S)
>Current AMZ Price 700x25c: $47
4. Continental Ultra Sport II Bike Tire (New tire on the block?)
>Current AMZ Price 700x25c: $22.37
Others to consider: Continental GatorSkin DuraSkin Tire ($40), Schwalbe Lugano HS 384 Clincher Road Bicycle Tire ($18)
On some of these, there are also folding versions of them too. I personally don't believe I need fold versions but you can consider them.
Also, I tend to prefer 700x25c however, there are some cyclists who prefer 23c. I think there's an age long debate about which is better, faster, grippier, etc. What do you guys prefer to use and why?
