I'm always looking for budget road tires to put on my bikes that I decide to sell. I'll start with these:
Vittoria Zaffiro- $16.99 each at the LBS. Thin and narrow, they look and ride great. The 25c is very thin, almost like a 23c. 28's are good for cross bikes or off roading.
Continental Ultra Sport- $17.99 each. The 23's are pretty wide (almost like a 26c tire) and roll like a tank. Good for bikes designed for riding through city streets.
Let's add to the list with your rec's. Thanks.
