    ‘afternoon

    My road bike came with some spesh slicks which have been fine but now the summer is over ( 😯 ) I’m wondering what good entry level type tyres folk would recommend for riding in the wet.

    I find my Michelin Pro Race 2’s handle the wet and dry equally well.

    What’s wrong with the tyres that you have at the moment?

    I think you’ll find that we might have at least another two months of so-called summer

    The Continental GP’s on my old winter bike were great.

    No matter how greasy the road, they’ve instilled confidence.

    I’ve just transferred them to the Ridley, as they’re lighter (& a slightly smaller circumferance) than the Vredensteins that were on it

    I’ve worn the tyres out on my road bike so looking to replace them, is it best to get some winter specific tyres such as Continental Ultra Gaterskin and replace in the spring, or should I get something such as ProRace 3 or GP4000

    I know the Prorace3 and GP4000 tyres are well recommended, but what about the Ultra Gaterskins?

    Michelin Pro Race 3’s get my vote, I was very impressed with the Pro Race 2’s.

    If it’s tyres for the winter that you wantthen I would go for Michelin Kyrilion. Good all round tyre, resistent to fairy visits and hard wearing.

    The ProRace tyres are good (I havethem on my summer bike) but I find that they start to cut up a bit when the weather is wet and the roads are a bit gritty.

    Ive put Continental Ultra Sports on mine. Mint in the wet. Smooth mid section with lightly grooved sides.Minimum rolling resistance but tread where you need it.
