"Performance" tires, like the ones that offer better grip in turns taken at 35 mph, would not really serve you that much, unless you are racing or riding at these speeds.
The roads here are notoriously bad, the intense winter freeze/thaw cycle just cracks them all up and while I'm almost always on asphalt one can't guarantee what shape it's in. While some better grip going round a corner at 35 would be nice, chances are I don't need it (on this bike anyway). Any specific brand recommended?
