Question about Vittoria Tires

So, I've narrowed my tire search down to Vittoria Rubinos, am I going to see proportional benefit if I spend $20 more a tire on the Rubino Pros? Or should I just stick with the regular Rubinos?

Rubino Pro's are racing bike tires and this is the commuter forum, so... no?

Well maybe. Do you want a fast supple tire or a durable tire? I lean towards the former, so paying the extra $20 is like something I would do, even for my commuter bike.

My commuter is also my fun bike. I ended up going with Rubino Pro Controls.

25's, first ride was excellent. I was rocking 30c Donnelly X'plor MSOs before and I really don't feel like I'm missing out on much in the way of comfort. I'll update at a later time when I've got a better idea of how they'll hold up long term.
