Going to be upfront with this. Initially when I first got them last month they were great. Today I found that the front tire has developed bulges in two spots. One on the tread surface, the other on the sidewall. When I have a tire go bad on me, it's almost always the rear tire. So having it be the front took me by surprise, removed them from the bike they were on and threw on a GrandPrix 4000 on the front and a grandprix 4 seasons on the back.
I would say stick to gatorskins, armadillos, pasela tourguards Vittoria Randoneurs. The thickslicks really are not worth the $$$ afterall in my opinion.
