Commuter tire / tire id.

Hi there,

I blew my front tire today, and I'm looking for a new set of tires for my daily commuter (CAAD 3).

I found this picture of a CAAD 3 with a really mean looking set of tires. Does any one know which one they are?

I had someone tell me they look like the Panaracer Ruffy Tuffy. After investigating, they really look like a good choice, but I can't seem to find a European webshop where I can order these. Amazon Europe doesn't have them anymore. Any tips where to get them?

Thanks for your help,

To me that symbol on the front tires looks like a Michelin man waving maybe older without the underline?

Just a decent guess I guess:

Michelin cyclocross tires. I think I have a set of those somewhere, IIRC the model name is "sprint" or something like that, file tread with side knobs.

FWIW I just got a set of Schwalbe Marathon Mondials for my crosscheck, and I think they look pretty boss as well

I like the look of the new Ritchey Alpine JB's:

Right? They make an all-black one as well, but I'm always drawn to tires with tan sidewalls.
