Help me decide which tyres to buy

Hi. I just bought cube touring city 2014 http://www.biker-boarder.de/shopware...m3tg3ht14.html
. Love the bike, will use it for commuting / light touring. Now I want upgrade tyres and my choice somehow came to thouse two
Schwalbe Marathon Deluxe HS 420 Marathon Deluxe HS 420 | Schwalbe North America

Schwalbe Marathon Supreme HS 382 Marathon Supreme HS 382 | Schwalbe North America

What I see, supreme are faster but deluxe are better in any other field. Anyone have experiance with both/one of them ?

Ty

I've run Marathon Supremes for years and they're some of the grippiest tires I've ever ridden in the rain. I've never had a flat despite pulling many bits of FOD out of the rear tire. They also ride very well and last a decent amount of miles. The Deluxes will prolly have better puncture protection,but unless you're having serious issues with flats(ride through construction areas,lots of glass lying around) I think they wouldn't be worth the tradeoff in grip,weight,or ride quality over Supremes.

The Supreme is probably the most liked and least regretted tyre in the world; the Deluxe should also be excellent. There really isn't a wrong choice here.

(Evil voice: But have you seen the Almotion??? Marathon Almotion - Schwalbe Professional Bike Tires Oooooh. It's a SUPER Supreme. Like if Batman and Superman had children. And those children were tyres. Which would make more sense with the Elastic Man, I suppose...)
