I've looked already though numerous search results but didn't find an answer. Hope you can advise me matching tires.
I am going to spend about two weeks in the area where asphalt roads are either bad or non-existent, and forest roads will be the most common alternative. I am over 100 kilos heavy and use to load another ~15 kilos of camping gear, water, food, etc.
I did already some touring on Schwalbe Marathon (700x28) in Italy, it was really fine, but:
- punctures were a problem
- I don't expect these tires to have a good grip on wet/muddy surfaces
I was considering buying Schwalbe Marathon XR 700x40 (HS 359), but can't find them in the local shops to have a look in reality. Are they good for the purpose? Are there better alternatives? It's hard to say looking on the producer's page what do i need, even the choice among just Schwalve products is already rather big (Terra Cruiser, Cross, Extreme, XR, etc.).
Any info is much appreaciated
