I used to ride the gator hard shells. I enjoyed them, but they gave a rough ride.

I have now switched to the continental gp4000s great tire.

open corsa's are too expensive to commute on.

gp4000's dont last long enough i find.

hardshell/gatorskins are my fav for riding around, even long rides. rides not that harsh.
you definitely feel more rolling resistance though

i ride 4season conti's on my main bike and i like them. good balance

Yeah I will def agree open corsas are not the most price effective however if you can find a good deal on them I def suggest trying some out!

Got a great deal on mine and super happy with them

I'm currently riding a rear Continental Super Sport which is doing me good so far and I have a Gatorskin spare. I really like the ride of the supersport versus riding gatorskins or randos, much smoother and lighter.

I'm running Conti Grand Prixs after realizing that hardshells were pretty overkill for the streets i ride. Pretty much the same thing as 4000s'. love them too

I was riding the popular Conti Gatorskin, but recently switched to Hutchinson Equinox.
I recently got a rear flat without any quick deflation, but they seem to hold up well here in the desert.

mich pro4. hands down. ive used many brands and these are the fastest and no flats if you keep them inflated properly.

the crappy part about pro4's is that they square out in the center, defeating the purpose of cornering

Front - GP4000S

Bontrager T1's or T'2. Lasts a million skids and for $15 a piece, it's perfect. IMO.

+1 on Zaffiro front and Rando rear. Bontrager t1's also served me well.

Gp4000's don't give to many flats?

Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires are extremely good.
