    I have been using Conti Ultra GatorSkin for the last three years with very little trouble. I know that some people swear by Schwalbe for puncture protection. Not heard of Vittoria before, would be interested to learn more, I am curious about the "exciting road-behaviour"...

    I used the Scwalbes on my bike last winter, they stood up pretty well to everything apart from glass chippings. I wenht to one of these on Sunday - http://www.cycle-promotions.co.uk/ - and saw them for fifteen quid a pair.

    I commuted on a pair of Michelin Pro2 Race - In a year I only had four or so unwelcome deflations, and that was 12miles a day through central London.

    A lot of people I worked with swore by Michelin Krylions.
