Beefed up sidewall protection = harsher ride. I rarely encounter road debris on my rides, so my preference leans toward a better riding tire. My rain bike wears the Pro4 Endurance, which do not ride nearly as smoothly as my regular Pro4's. Both models stick to wet roads very well.

Road Bike Tire Comparison: Continental Grand Prix 4 Season Vs Michelin Pro 4 Endurance v2 Vs Schwalbe Durano

I currently use pro-4 endurance. I'm happy but this brand is being phased out. For the moment I loaded up at a discount, but wondering what current brand is equal to or better than the older pro-4-endurance.
What I noticed is that Michelin eliminated the beefed up side-wall protection.
From my personal experience, the closest tire that resembles the Pro4 Endurance is the Grand Prix 4 Seasons, but with a slight edge going to the Michelin in regards to performance.

I haven't tired the new Power Endurance yet. They are priced similar to the Pro4 Endurance.

Also, the new Power Competition is much better than the Pro4 Service Course and the 4000s II.

In the Michelin Power line there is also the Michelin All Season and Protection+ tires. I can't find a whole lot of information on them but I think the Protection+ is supposed to have side wall protection.
