Strengths:    No

Weaknesses:    Punctures!!!

Bottom Line:   
My old tires needed replacing. I put two rubino pro slick tires on my bike and one on my husband's
Our first ride..both of mine punctured and my husband's as well. My husband's old tire was fine.
And yes they were installed properly. After riding flat free for 3 years we would not recommend these tires.
We did get a refresher in flat repair though!

Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    A completely horrible tyre! No grip, zero comfort, high rolling resistance.

Bottom Line:   
It's an accomplishment to make such a bad tyre. A slick with high rolling resistance. 25 mm and no comfort. This crap came as standard on my new bike and i gave it a try for a few weeks, not being totally satsified with my bike. Then I changed to Conti Grand Prix 4 and the transformed my bike.

Strengths:    Very comfortable (in size 25c), grips well, seems durable, fairly light

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
I felt the need to post a review on these tires since some of the previous reviewers either had defective ones, or were not using the current Rubino Pro III. Basically, the new version uses a 150tpi (threads per inch) count which makes them very supple and smooth. I'm finding them more comfortable than the Michelin Pro Race 4's that I just replaced, and also more durable. I would say that the Michelin's were better in acceleration, but the Vittoria's are more compliant and seem longer lasting.
Here's the strange thing... Even though I found the Michelins to be more responsive, I am consistently faster on all my hill climbs with the Rubino Pro III. I have no idea why, especially since these are just as heavy as the PR4's, so I'll just just say they must have put a little magic in there :-) Anyways, these are great tires at an even better price.

Strengths:    They're readily available in 25c, reasonably durable, good value for the sale price at Performance, pretty light.

Weaknesses:    Not the toughest sidewalls - I've lost a couple to small rocks that have squished against the sidewall and gouged a chunk. No blowouts, but enough damage to have to replace the tire. A Gatorskin would have survived, but they're heavier, more expensive, and don't roll nearly as well.

Bottom Line:   
I like a 25 width for one of my bikes. I used to be able to get Vredestein Fortezzas Tricomps in 25c, but those are now scarce in shops and they're really expensive. Took a flyer at Performance a few years ago and have been really happy since. The tread wears really well. The ride quality isn't as nice a Fortezza Tricomp, but it isn't too far off. Nice tire for the sale price. I like 'em and will keep using them as my go-to 25c tire.
