New Tires for My Tiburon

I currently have 35's on. Has anyone put on 25's or 28's. Wanting a little more speed. Don't know if it will make much difference. Anyone have any experience? Thanks

A narrower tire with *smooth* tread is always faster than the wider tire.

Some smooth 28's would make it feel faster.

I ride on 700 x 28's on a road bike.
I am not sure what size is on your rims.
You might look on the tire and see what it says.
Any brand is good in my book.
I buy what is cheap and or wait for a sale.

If you're riding on a bike path any tire will do.
If you're riding on the road with glass, metal debris, etc. read thru the Road Cycling, Commuting, and General Cycling forums for tires that posters report as flat proof.
I use Panaracer Pasela TourGuards on my commuter bike and Continental GP4000 on my road bike.
