    I have the 4000s. No flats. Low rolling resistance. Good in the rain, too. Awesome.

    Attack/Force - haven't ridden. Probably nice too, though. Intended for racing, I think.

    I've never gone wrong with Contees since they fixed their crummy sidewall probably a few years back.

    I have the 4000's, but currently can't seem to get the damn things on my wheels since the fit is amazingly tight. Once I get less lazy, I'll let them sit in the sun to stretch out a bit and then try to mount 'em again.

    I have the 4000's also and have raced on them since March without a single flat. Good ride quality, great cornering, positive experience all around for me.

    I have used the attack/force combo. Excellent gripping. Extremely difficult in combination with my DA rims. I have broken several tire levers with these. You are not likely to get them on by hand. I loved these tires with one exception: The first force I used went bare in about 400 miles where the others have had no difficulty with 1000-1500 miles. Important if you have a limited budget. And of course if you are a skidder (locking brakes) don't expect them to last you any length of time. GREAT CORNERING.

    I have the 4000's and have yet to get a flat. I wanted to go with the attack/force set but the rear always wears out faster and getting just a rear can be difficult. Go with the 4000's and get the 21 front and 23 rear for the same feel.

    i also have the 4000's and find these to be one of the best riding tires I have ever used.

    I usually ride Attack/Force. Last time I bought a rear tire, they only had a GP 4000. I can't tell one iodata of difference between the GP4000, and the Force. On the front the Attack is 22 mm, vs 23 mm for the GP4000, so that could result in a little difference. As for getting them on:
