I've had very good luck with Vittoria. I've used Randonneurs for commuting for the last 3 or 4 years. I toured on Michelin Lithion around the south in 2011 and should have kept them on my bike but decided that they were looking a little cut and worn in Cincinatti and changed to the tire in the picture. Just this spring I did 1500 miles of touring on Panaracer RibMo around Lake Erie. This included a lot of dirt road, canal path and rail trail riding. They worked wonderfully. Their profile is not completely round but they are still good tires.
