    Bontrager hardcase racelites are ok for the price.

    Vittoria Rubino's are great all rounders, hard wearing and good puncture protection. on sale at wiggle at mo - £10.49- most riders in my small club ride on them. I got a good deal on the Rubino pros (foding version) a while back -£12 on ebay.

    I used schwalbe luganos when I was commuting and for bristol to lands end. Only got foiled by a pinch flat when I fitted them and a 1 inch screw!

    Im running gatorskins at the moment and they run slower but more hard wearing. Gators where 24 quid each (halfords special offer) and the luganos where 17 quid each. Luganos lasted about 1500 miles with my 17 stone lard ass on it!

    Agree with this 100%
    Last pair I had did over 3 and half thousand miles with only 2 punctures, one of those due to a pot hole.

    Highonbikes often have good deals on tyres on eBay, e.g. the Schwalbe Blizzards
