    Can I have your recommendations for best road tyres please. I now I've debated this before so apologies.

    My only criteria
    - I like 25c's
    - I ride in all conditions
    - I hate punctures
    - I use Clincher wheels
    - Not too heavy please

    If you've seen any offers, let me know
    thanks in advance

    i like and have used loads of vittoria rubino's on my bikes and normally go for the wired variety

    Halfords had the Gatorskins on offer a couple of weeks ago ??

    This thread is just going to end up as a list of all tyres on the market.

    Quite probably (although M+ fail on the last criterion, and for me the second, awful when slippery)

  7. True but the only correct answer will be Durano Plus ;)

    Durano and Mich Endurance have been very reliable in the past for me . I have used Vittoria Rubino Pro 3s but do not rate them for winter miles. Currently trying out Conti 4 seasons as I was quite flush with cash unusually for January so will see how these last long term !

    Absolutely - if you're not going to fit Marathon Plus then Durano Plus is the only sensible option. Don't waste time and money fitting Hamsterskins or the like...
  10. Another vote for Vittoria Rubino. I also like Panaracer Pasella. On my fixed I am currently riding Vittoria Randonneur for the winter, good puncture resistance but more sluggish.

  12. Gatorskin hardshells are horrific in my experience of them, horrible, skittish, and puncture resistant as toothpaste. I prefer Durano Plus, as my weapon of choice for pneumatic tyres, in the winter, I’d also recommend Michelin Pro 4s, from personal experience, but they tend to be more expensive.

    I get the skatorskins comments but Mich Pro 4s??? That’s a racing tyre , fast as but no way would run it in winter !! I must travel on really rough roads or awfy unlucky!
