@bikiola, not yet. I just got a pair of slightly used Compass tires, and I think I'll try them soon. I'm really not worried about flats. I do worry about sidewall wear, though. People extolled the virtues of Veloflex tires, and I was very disappointed with how short they lasted, but I guess the target market is different for those. They're very narrow.

I recently started riding Continental GP4000S-II tires on the racing bike I keep in the country. I got them in 28mm, and they are pretty fantastic. My impression is that Continental tires are quite durable. I believe this model has no puncture protection, which is a plus for me.
