    Tire Suggestions

    I am looking to replace the tires on my wife's hybrid bike. Since she rarely rides off-road and would like to do more long road rides, I would like to get her a set of tires that are more road oriented than the ones she currently has. I found these:

    They look good to me, but they seem a little pricey (that's michelin for ya). I was wondering if anyone has some suggestions for a less pricey comparable road favoring tire that comes in size 700x32 or 700x35.

    Thanks

    I really like the ride quality and rolling resistance of these tires at 70-80psi. I haven't found them to be very flat resistant though. IMO you should only spend more money for tires that have better flat resistance.
