23c Tire for Skidding

Anyone have anyone suggestions for a 700x23 rear tire that lasts as long as my 28 rando?

Oh, super everwear I guess for a 23 now. My rando has some life left, hopefully the 25 comes out before it croaks.

the less contact, width wise, your rear wheel has with the ground the more force there will be on the point of contact. This is why you inflate 20/23X700C tires to higher pressures than 700X28C tires. A 700X20C will wear a whole lot faster than a 700X38C. I doubt you'll find a 23 that lasts as long as a 28.

I mean the sidewalls will stand up if you keep your pressure up and on the wearing it just gets stupid when it's absolutely squaaare

You might not like the Pana-T-serv's tread patterns. I think those were identical to Pasera. And, that tread pattern flips up sharp-fragments so they go "vertical" on the tire for some people. ...

Yeah I had herrrd that those everwears just wear down consistently, to a nice square profile. Squared tires are like flatzzz4dayzzzzzz.
