    The Loveable Panaracer Pasela's or Wolber Coton?

    My old tires are about to burst. I do short commutes on my ride but nothing that necessitates wide, cushy tires.

    With the choice between Panaracer Paselas (700x25c) and the Wolber Coton (700x19/20). Which would be nicer if they cost the same?

    +1 The Wolber is a training tire -
    I would go for the Pasela -Tourguard version.

    I have no experience with the Wolbers, but I really love my Panaracers. Just ordered another set. I also recommend the tourguards for commuting.

    Would the Wolbers be good enough for flips?

    Only if you can land softly.
    Real cyclists use toe clips.

    Where do you even get Wolber tires? I didn't even know the name is still around.

    Regardless, Panaracer has always been my favorite tire brand. I love my Paselas.

    I recently fixed up an old Schwinn with original tires intact. They were Schwinn-branded Panaracers, and even those old tires felt very nice.
    I have made this longer than usual because I have not had time to make it shorter. --Blaise Pascal
