Shamal 700 Tubulars - Recommendations?

Something nice from the 90s for the casual rider? Are these wheels particular to any one tire over another? What do yall recommend?

Thanks!!

Continental Sprinter 250 for a general purpose tubular. I like Vittoria's Corsa series for racing applications

the Sprinter can be had with gatorskin technology as well if your going to ride/train on them frequently

That a a great price, but do you feel that putting Giro's on a set of vintage Shamals would be akin to putting re-cap tires on a Porsche ?

I would have those on a set of decent hubs laced 32 hole and 3 cross to a nice set of Mavic or H-Son rims --- then keep a premium tire on the Shamals for nice rides ----- the lip on those Shamals is a bit prone to deformation on funky stuff-- (railroad tracks, road debris, etc) -- v=but on a smooth route, they are poetry in motion
