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

Another tire thread

I'm in desperate need for a new tire now and after reading a lot about a lot, i am going to try putting a larger tire in back instead of the 23's I have been running.

Panaracer Pasela - $22
Panaracer T-serv - $38
Panaracer Ruffy Tuffy - $40
Vittoria Randonneur - $26

These are the tires I'm looking at, all 700 x 27/28. Puncture protection is important to me. I still prefer lighter weight which is why the Randonneur isn't so appealing at 500+g and the fact i have heard it is very stiff and harsh to ride.

Mostly I want to know if a T-serv or Ruffy Tuffy is really worth double the price of a Pasela. What am I gaining in either of those tires that makes them so much better? So Far I am favoring the Ruffy tuffy but would either like it to be confirmed it is in fact great, or be convinced it isn't nearly worth double the price of a perfectly fine Pasela.

Nobody has anything make or brake on any of these choices?
I've read lots of reviews. Just looking for any last minute information to either elevate or crush one so i can make a more informed decision and not regret an expensive tire
