Subjective subject

Tires are very subjective. However, I'll put my recommendations out:

1) Michelin Pro Race - excellent flat resistance, excellent dry grip, average wet grip, good wear, durable sidewalls, not too heavy, and feel great at 100-110 PSI. I use them for racing and good weather training with no complaints.

2) Vredestein Fortezza/Tri-Comp - very good flat resistance, very good grip wet or dry, good wear, good sidewalls, decent weight, the only drawback is that you have to pump them up to 130 PSI or the sidewalls seem flexy. I am currently using these on my winter bike because their slightly lower profile in 23mm fits under my fenders (tight clearance). I have not had a flat in 3000km of training, a lot of it in rainy weather.

Doh! Prices

For the above tires, check out eBay and look for the "biketiresdirect" retailer. They have very good prices. Also send an email to critUSAatAOLdotcom for his current pricing.
