Cannondale Quick 4 tires VS Trek Puncture resistant tires
My GF is looking at getting a women's Cannondale Quick 4 or a Trek 7.3 FX.
The Cannondale has these tires - Kenda Kwick Trax, 700x32c
The Trek has these - Bontrager AW1 Hard-Case Lite, 700x32c
Trek claims that their tires are " puncture resistant ".
Is there a big difference between these two tires?
The Kendas have more tread,but not enough that it should make that much difference. I wouldn't let the tires be the deciding factor in choosing between two bikes unless one has premiums and the other has budget ones. Components,ride quality,and fit are much more important. Tires can always be swapped,and some shops might even let you exchange them during purchase.
