    tire for chicago winter

    I'm running 700x23 seca serfas tires, does anyone have a suggestion for a suitable 23 or 25 flat resistant, but not too slow rolling winter tire? Can I get by with my current tires until the snow and slush starts, or does the colder pavement alone warrant the use of a winter tire?

    Thanks

    A LBS guy said Schwalbe did the research and came up with: tire width doesn't significantly affect rolling resistance below 15mph. In the winter here, no bare pavement, I am happy with 15mph around town. Its not the cold pavement but any moisture in contact with freezing pavement is ice. Ice = studs, snow= knobbies, and probably fat tires.
