Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Williams Tyres

Almost done with my build and looking for some tyres to wrap the Souls with. While I was searching for wheels a little while ago, I noticed Williams sells a set of tubes and tyres. Price is $70 which seems reasonable. Does anyone have any experience with these?

they're almost definitely rebranded something or the other. personally, i'd just stick to one of the reputable tried and true BF favorites. search around, you can find a set of gp4ks or ultremos for that price.

for $75 you can get a pair of Mich PR3s shipped. that would be the way i would go w/ some good light tubes.

If your looking for some good, inexpensive training tires Michelin Lithions and Vittoria Rubino Pros are good. Conti GP4000's are great tires as well but a little bit more pricey compared to the Michelins and Vittorias.

I bought the Williams tires when I bought my William's wheel set. Like the wheel set, but not impressed with the tires. Schwalbe Ultremo, Hutcheson Atom's, Pro 3s, etc. (i.e name brands) seem to ride much better.

This is exactly what I was hoping for, someone who actually bought the things. I thought it seemed like a good deal at first but after looking around for a little more and noticing that for a few more dollars I could get some better tyres I think I'll be going with something else.

Lower quality, harder, rubber compound that rides a little harsher and wears faster. Get the GP4000Ss or Attack/Force combo with Chili compound.
