Gp4000s vs Pro4

(closed)
Looking to get a new set of tires. Reading lots of good things about both sets of tires.

Which would you go for and why?

I run GP4000s tires on all my bikes and best tire I've ever used... such a smooth roll.

theyre both amazing tires.
ran pro3's. dont know if pro4's are any better...

also ran gp's and yes they are fking quiet. but they dont last long [ under my weight :( and im only 178lbs ]

at this point its down to how much per tire i'd be looking to pay for. take whats cheapest and they'll both be great tires for riding/commuting/racing

for training and street riding, both will give you flats. theyre good race tires, ive heard the pro 4's are super fast, and gp4000 have always been known as great tires, but some gatorskins, or some cheap tires with a liner will make you a lot happier in the long run. flats suck. save the fast tires for race day. thats just my opinion

Ended up just sticking with the gator hardshells.

I might give the pro 4 a chance in the spring.

I run conti gp4000s' and I have no complaints. They aren't as puncture proof as my old gatorskin hardshells but they feel much better, for lack of better words. Only had 2 puncture flats in the past like 2000 miles, I also use a tire liner though.
