    Thanks for all the help guys. After reading all the replies and consulting some local riders, I'm closest to going for Continental 4 seasons, or GP 4000 S. Considering looking for them at discount prices and ordering. I guess this thread was a bit like the Corsica elections:



    Of all the named cheap tyres, I'm about to go for the most praised, costly ones.

    Any reason to avoid GP4000s as too soft, or 4 seasons as too hard? :/

    No GP4000s is not too soft in the tread and the Vectran belt seems to work pretty decent, but their sidewalls are paper thin; but due to their less weight then the 4 Seasons it's a tad faster, by tad I mean you probably won't notice. The 4 Seasons is a slightly more rugged tire with better sidewalls then the 4000s and it has double Vectran belts instead of a single Vectran belt as in the 4000s.

    So the choice is yours, do you want a slightly faster tire at the cost/risk of flats and sidewall tears, or you want a tire that will hold up longer with a slight weight penalty. If this is a commuter bike go with the 4 Seasons, if this a bike for training and club racing and trashy streets are not in your area then go with the 4000s.

    Amazon has the 4 Seasons for $48 which is about the same as Ribble.
