My entry level steel bike has 1250 miles on it and the inexpensive tires are showing some wear, so I've started researching replacement tires. But, I have a question concerning tire width.
Is there any real difference between a 25 or 28 concerning rolling resistance and comfort?
My current tires are 700x25 and I ride for fun and overall fitness, no racing or serious speed. I'd like a smooth rolling tire for all around riding, from; short intervals, climbing, leisure group rides and even a century or two. Also, I may ride the bike in wet weather too.
My son is recommending a 700x28, he said the tire is more comfortable then a 23 or 25 and I won't notice the extra width. Which I why I'm asking here since the 25's have been OK, but this if my first road bike so I have no experience.
So what do you prefer and if you have a tire recommendation, that would help too.
