Tpi Model

A good clincher tyre for my road bike was thinking Corsa opens or Michelin pro 3 I had?

a set of Ultremo R's on and despite all the reviews my back tyre has split exposing the fabric and the front is slashed badly after only 4 months I know its your luck at times with tyres but I want too give the Vitoria Corsa or Pro 3s a shot has anyone any good or bad experiences with either? thanks

If you are racing, go with the Vittoria's. Supposed to be the lowest resistance (320 TPI model) tires on the market. If you are not a racer, read their disclaimer on the box about gravel, thorns, and glass. They really do offer little puncture protection. They wear out quickly also. I have 1500 on a set and they are ready to be replaced. I am trying to eek out the rest of the season on them.

Bike #2 is shod with a pair Continental Gran Prix 4000S's that have rolled 5000 miles and are half worn by the wear indicators. I happen to like the handling a lot better than the Vittoria's. I have 2 ready to replace the Vittoria's when its time. Several times in the past 2 seasons of riding the 4000S's the route had turned to fresh chip and seal, or roads that had reverted to gravel. Not one cut on front or rear tire.

My son rides on Michelin Pro 2's and I have tired his bike. I don't care for the feel of them, and I have heard the Pro 3's feel to be similar. No personal experience with Pro 3's.

I have trained, toured and raced on the Continentals. I don't think there is a better tire for me. Three of our riding group ride on Schwalbe's of differing models. One of them has had to have her tires replaced twice. Yes even the replacement "upgraded" tire needed to be replaced. Both sets had splits in the tread area exposing the casing.
