Tire suggestion
 
I've done a little searching and haven't yet found the answer.

I'm looking for some new tires. My Continental Grand Prix have seen better days. I'm looking for an all purpose tire, more for training than racing. Also looking for a good deal, not to expensive but not too cheap.

I got 5,000 miles out of my last set of Kenda Kriteriums. They aren't too expensive and they are a very good all around tire.

What kind of search you have done without seeing that the answer is always Continental 4000 GP or Michelin Pro Race 2.

I just ordered a pair of Michelin Pro Race 2 from Pro Bike Kit. I currently have some terrible off-brand tires that are now flat across the top. I haven't ever tried them but from the reviews by people on BF they seem to be a solid choice.
Side question: anyone know about how long it takes for delivery from PBK? I leave to go back to school next Saturday, will they be in by then?

Schwalbe Blizzards are great for training and they're not super-heavy.

For just riding around, I ride Bontrager B selects. Very good profile that gives good stability in turns and good traction. Less than $10 at most LBSs.

Sounds like you're on a budget and that's the real issue. What would you give up for a few months to get good tires for your good wheelset?

It all depends on what "not too expensive but not too cheap" means. I'm a fan of Vredestein Fortezza Road tires. There cheaper than Michelin or Continental tires yet they have excellent grip, puncture resistence, rolling performance and good wear.

Last time it took about a week for me here on the east coast.
