Need recommendation for Tires

I have been riding GP 4000 ll 25mm.
I need new tires and am looking for the least RR with good puncture protection.
Also should I go with 23mm rather than 25,

I am a recreational rider who does 30-60 mile trips.
Mostly on good surfaces.

thank you
Ken

All i use is gp4ks2 best tire i have ever used, i run them all year round 25mm mostly , the only thing i could suggest is go tubeless , then you get both .

You could try continental attack and force . its a 23mm front 25 mm rear set of tires . i dont think they will be better on punctures . but its like a tt tire.

Also 23 can be 25 mm depending on the rim 25mm can be around 28 . just make sure you measure your tire . then you will know for sure !!!

everyone raves about the tires you are riding. Reading all tire threads the Conti GP4K 2's are the most popular imo

if flats are your main priority, Conti Gator Hardshells. I ride them and they are basically, install and forget them other than air

Wierd that someone would want to switch from GPs, but if you need more puncture protection try Conti's gatorskin
