Yes I did do some searching before posting this but I wanted to get some more opinions from people who have used one or both of these tires before I make a decision. I am getting some new tires for my road bike (700x25) and need some advice. I am thinking about either the Gatorskin Hardshell or the Grand Prix 4 Season. I ride mostly on side streets and bike paths and had issues with flats so I started using heavy duty puncture resistant tubes and that took care of the problem, but I am getting a new bike and want to use regular tubes again so I wanted a tire with good puncture resistance. I don’t ride in bad weather and I mostly stick ride in the summer months when it is warm outside. I would like a tire that lasts a long time, and I don’t do any racing or high speed riding, mostly at a moderate pace for longer distances (up to 30 mile or so per ride). Which of the two (Gatorskin Hardshell and Grand Prix Season 4) would have better puncture resistance and which would have more durability as far as treadwear? I see that the Grand Prix Season 4 has a bit more tread to it, versus the Gatorskin Hardshell is bald in the middle, but again I try not to ride in the rain or bad whether anyway so I guess that would not be a concern. Any advice would be much appreciated.
