so this recent blast of arctic love that boston recieved has me thinking about the upcoming months. first thing i do when i get back to town and return to work is get new tires. im riding 700x18 wheels /w bontrager race lite tires and am wondering if there are any tires out there that'll make much of a difference.
this is my first winter here, should i be concentrating more on taking it easy in ****** conditions or putting money aside for a new wheelset?
lots of options for differing terrain! the nokians and schwalbes are about the same price. nokians are a tad narrower than the schwalbe. schwalbes have the reflective sidewall, i dont really like it though.

Well, I ended up with a pair of Hutchinson Gold Pro 700x30z, which just sneak into the clearances under my front brake and at the back. Damn track frames and their fagpaper clearance. Great grip on slithery mud and wet gravelly filth - not had any snow or ice since, but I trust them.
Now where's that 21t sprocket? I got me some scorching to do...
