Can anyone recommend some 700x32c tan wall tyres?

    Hi All,

    The stock tyres, Continental Sport Contact tyres (700x32c), that came with my bike, a 2014 Genesis Day One Alfine 8, are now worn out and need replacing because the tread is pretty bare and the casing is splitting.

    For no other reason than I like the look of them I quite fancy a set of tan wall tyres.

    So far I think that the front runners are the wired versions of the Panaracer Pasela ProTite tyres:-

    Other tyres out there that I've spotted are the Clement Strada LGG Road but I think that these are folding tyres only and I'd rather have wired.

    There's also the Challenge Strada Bianca Pro but again I think that they're folding only and they're also only available in 700x30 or 36c not 32c plus they're more expensive than the Panaracer tyres.

    I just wondered if anyone has any suggestions of tyres to look at?

    Thanks in advance for any tips.

    I love these - mainly because they look great.

    They may well come up closer to 32 than 30. I haven't measured them, but other Challenge tires I've had measured bigger than stated. One downside is that the Pro tires are swines to fit the first time you use them (afterwards they stretch a bit).
