I'm riding on 25c Continental Gator Skins at the moment, they feel fast and stick to the road well. i'm commuting on roads with quite a lot of traffic trucks etc, the roads arent anything special and so you get all the usual things your tyres pick up. The rims are definitely nothing special, came free with the bike when I picked it up neglected on roadside.
A courier told me a while back the skins are euro tyres and the compound not designed for riding in the Aussie heat - now that its warming up here and i am doing about 40km each day on them, they look like they are wearing down quite fast and I got a flat today (im actually pretty impressed, this is the first flat i have got running these tyres).
Looking for suggestions for my next pair of tyres, a similar feel, bit more durable and will take the heat over summer.
Thanks guys. Cal.
