looking to upgrade my rubber.
i now have 700x28c continental ultra sports. cheap, crappy tires.
the guy i bought the bike from put them on the bike and ive gotten 3 flats in 300-400 miles.
yes, ive put the tubes in right, trust me when i say its the tires. ive seen tons of bad reviews for them online.
i have a touring bike, what i want is some bulletproof tires that will go thousands of miles for me. im willing to shell out about $50 clams for a tire.
i think some tread will be nice because i want to use it in a variety of weather, but if the tires are treadless and do well in all weather im fine with that.
i commute, do tours, centuries, ect.
i would like the tires to absorb some amount of bumps too for a more comfy ride and so my wheels stay true longer.
im trying to decide between these continental tires:

tour ride http://www.amazon.com/Continental-To...ywords=700x28c
touring plus http://www.amazon.com/Continental-To...cmu_pg__header
anyone here who can give me their 2 cents on which would best suit me/ knows of a quality tire?
