Hi

As winter is creeping on us!! , I'm looking for new tires replace the current one..

And read up a forum, someone suggests change to 700x23c to 700x25c

also I'm plan get Continental Grand Prix 4-Season, but not sure 23c or 25c...

25's more comfortable and u wont notice the speed difference

Conti Gatorskins or Specialised Armadillos

get a Kevlar beaded tyre, dont worry about weight for a winter tyre

Steve, I put gatorskins (25's) on a few years ago and I only use them now. They are great winter/training tyres

Pop over for a look if you want to see them

Grand, both of you!! will buy it soon!!!

Thank for advice, Andy!! Might pop over for the bike!!

So Mr Bray...Kevlar..sound like bulletproof, so I'm assuming there is a sniper or hunter shoot at the wheel during winter cos hunt animal is over in next few weeks
