Training Tubs are cheaper .. you have to read the specs as to whether they include a Kevlar belt in the tread..

Common, back in the day, was to buy the cheap tires by the dozen, then once down to the last couple ,

spend a day opening the casing, patching tubes and stitching them back together .

If I were you , I'd save the Tubs , get nice ones, for racing, and train on a set of clincher wheels
for their easier puncture mending , on the road.

after Inflation and VAT, over there, by now, I expect the cheap tubs are 40 each.
