Tyre ecomomics - kilometers per unit cost
I was wondering if it's worth investigating more expensive tyres if the idea is to save money in the long run. I'm a utility cyclist and don't get many punctures so I'm most interested in in how long I get until the rubber has worn away to reveal the layer-of-whatever beneath. My bike is a heavy Dutch thing with panniers (so I use it to carry heavy loads of shopping) and the rear tyre wears much faster than the front. Which tyres do you think offer the best ratio between kilometers (on road) versus cost?
