    Tire Recommendation For Straight-side Rims

    I have a set of Weinmann 700c straight side rims on my 1978 Raleigh Competition GS. The rims apear to be fairly lightweight, but I have a heck of a time keeping tires on them. The Michelin 700 X 25 Dynamic tires I've installed will blow off the rim even at the minimum pressure recommendation of 73 psi!

    So, my question is: what tire is best suited for this straight-side rim?

    Thank you,

    Jason

    '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

    Try some 700x28 or 32 with wire (not kevlar) beads.
