Been shopping for good quality touring tire and my frustration is running high. Have not been able to find a good quality tire in the size I am looking for IN STOCK. I would like a 700x32 or 35. My first target was the Continental Top Contact Reflex but they do not seem to exist outside of Europe. Also like the Continental Tour 2000 but they are not made anymore. Next target was the Schwabe Supreme....not available in my size. I looked at Schwabe Marathon Plus but it is heavier that I prefer. I have some on order from my LBS but he said all his suppliers are on backorder.
I know that a lot more choices are out there but I am not familiar with some of the other brands nor their durability. Lots of tire choices in 26" but not very good selection in 700x32 or 35.
If you were shopping for a good touring tire in my sizes, what would you be looking for (brand & model)?
