probably a new set everytime he gets on the bike .
also remember in races they dont have to ride on the shoulder where all the crap is.

According to his website Lance uses Hutchinson tires, clinchers for training and sewups for racing. There's also more cool stuff about him at http://www.lancearmstrong.com/lance/...2.nsf/html/FAQ

Hope this helps!

Last year he got new tires every day, the other team members every other day.
This raises an interesting statistical question, "Is a wheel that has already shown a resistance to flatting and an absence of flaws a higher or lower risk than an unproven wheel hanging in the mech trailer waiting for the glue to dry?"
