I'm same size as you, sound about like the same sort of rider and roads (NE Ohio here.) Get the 25's, dial back the pressure a little, and enjoy.cinnepa said:in the market for new tires, always rode 23c's...just wondering and tinkering with the idea of going to 25c's (possible smoother ride?) - ride in pennsylvania, no racing at all but i like a good performance tire; nothing too heavy - roads not too bad but condition of pave varies on every ride. running 6'-2", 185lbs.....just wanted to get some +/- feedback from those who switched to 25's.
tire i'm looking at now is the vittoria zaffiro pro clincher.
Can't speak to Zaffiro's. I used to run Rubino Pros, enjoyed those plenty. Running Conti GP4000's now - just what was in stock at PBK last time I ordered. Liking those, too. It's too early to tell, but it seems like the Rubino's have a softer compound - arguably better grip, but shorter life. But I haven't pushed the handling or the mileage enough to say either is fact.
