    spinskins vs. mr. tuffy

    i just recently started commuting with my roadbike and, while i really should have thicker tires (bike wont allow), i would like to line my tires to prevent the flats. has anyone used either the spinskins or mr. tuffy with any success? please advise, thanks.

    I live by mr. Tuffy, even on my performance road bike. My cross bike has em too. Flats are always slower than the added weight.... Not familiar with spinskins, but have noticed that new mr. Tuffys are getting thinner over the years.

    Mr. Tuffy's works for me. Cactus strewn singletrack, no flats that weren't of the pinch variety yet, and I have pulled a broken thorn or two out of the tire. Your sidewalls will still be vulnerable, though.
