26" Tire Recommendations
I need to replace 4 26" tires on my neighbors Specialized Expeditions. Rims are 599X18, current tires are Specialized 26X1.95, Hemisphere, Armadillos. OEM - These Expeditions are '06-'08
The bikes are ridden on pavement, and very occasionally hard packed MUP. 99% pavement. Rides are less than 20 miles.
I need recommendations for relatively inexpensive, good rolling, reasonably durable and puncture resistant tires. They are not stuck on width.
Thanks for any and all assistance you are able to give.
Yes, I love my Schwalbes, but don't think they want to spend that kind of money on tires that don't turn very often. Even those Armadillos are kind of pricey at the LBS.
