Schwalbe Road Plus Tires..Anybody?
I have a chance to pick up a pair of Schwalbe Road Plus Tires for a good price:

Anybody use them or have experience with them? They would be in the 700x28-32 range..

I run the Marathons from Schwalbe. Mate these look the same with a 3mm liner instead of the 5mm in the touring tyres. Tread wear is really good.

Do they feel as a heavy tire to you?

past 12 months saw 3 instances of premature Schwalbe tire failure. 1 of my own & 2 other BF contributors

They will feel heavy and slow. Good for commuting, but not as much fun as a faster tire.

Those look painful to ride for anything other than short commuter trips.

995 grams per tire?
No way!

And I thought my 40mm GravelKing SK tires were heavy at 490g each. :lol:

You can get a light tire or a very puncture resistant one , but not Both. Choose.

I'm not a weight weenie and appreciate the longevity that these tyres have. If you are concerned about weight then these tyres are probably going to feel very heavy.
