After the last two rides and five punctures, I'm frustrated. I need to replace the Specialized Team Pro on my bike and want to know what tire's people have used that have good puncture resistance to goat's head thorns. The Specialized seem to attract thorns and suck them directly to the tube.
Wire bead, Kevlar bead, doesn't matter. All I need to know is who makes a really strong casing.
Im riding the Panaracer Fire XC Pro Kevlar and there isnt enough i can say about them
They are AWESOME
This is for XC at least, they also make Fire FR Pro.
The Cinder is also supposed to be a good XC tire

Stan's No-tubes with whatever tires you like. Really. I was skeptical until both my friend and I picked up some goatheads. While I was fixing my tube, he laughed at me and picked his out - they sealed instantly. I have one of my bikes converted, the other will be soon.
