    which tire for my Trek T900?

    if you are to decide based on specification, which tire would you choose?
    definitely not for racing use. mostly day tour and fitness ride.

    tire A
    26x1.3 slick, 66tpi, 72psi max
    60a duro thermo silica
    680grams (puncture resistance system)
    wire bead

    tire B
    26x1.25 slick, 60tpi, 100psi max
    70a durable long wearing compound
    probably less than 500grams (basic puncture protection only)
    wire bead

    i hope you guys don't mind the 'blind test', maybe you can try to guess the tire.

    thanks in advance!

    There is so little difference between those tires that it hardly matters.

    FWIW I would go with the one rated for higher psi.

    I'm using a set of Schwalbe Stelvio 26 Inch 26x1.1 Folding Bead (28-559, 115 Max. PSI, 250 grams)
    Very puncture resident no cuts yet at least I have tried a few different tires and so far these have been best for our use.
    It may not be fancy but it gets me were I need to go.
