Picked a tire (Michelin Krylion), width question
My Conti Gatorskin Ultra front tire is looking pretty ragged and I've heard good things about the Krylion tires so I thought I'd check them out. I'd convinced myself that I should go with the 700x25 size since I'm an all-weather San Francisco city commuter, but silly as it may be, they only come with a gray stripe, not the other nice colors that are available in the 700x23 size.
So help me out, I'll notice a little softer ride and slight increase in puncture resistance if I buy the 700x25 size, correct? I should probably just suck up the less desirable color.
More about my riding: I commute daily in the city, riding over lots of broken glass bits, potholes, and god knows what else. It doesn't rain much in SF but I also ride in the rain/wet in the winter.
Thanks in advance!
