Welcome! Is that your car as your avatar? If it is nice colors! And I take pics of cars if you're interested Very Happy. For under 30 you wont find the "best" tires. Like Paul said the

Continental Gatorskins are the bang for the buck around $40
-They last long especially if you skid a lot.

I personally want to get the Michelin Pro Race 3's. They go for like $45-50 a piece the problem is they dont last as long.
-They are good for speed and high in durability.
-Rated high in ride comfort

For under $30 look at the Michelin Lithium tires. Around $25 a piece. They come in colors too!


You might want to see the website review forums for some legitimate websites. I personally like pricepoint.com and jensonusa.com really cheap there.

I think I'm going to get some Panaracer Pasela TourGuards pretty soon. I don't know if they're the best, but they look awesome, haha. Plus, they're touring tires, so they have to be pretty puncture resistant.

im using some 700 x 38c Specialized x Infinite Armadillo tires and i do skidding and tricking etc on them, i got them like 3 to 4 months ago and it looks like nothing happened to the tread since. these tires are hella strong and durable, im not going to lie and they can be used for road,pavement, or dirt. i dont really think there are any cons about them. i used to ride on 700 x 28c kenda tires but after a few weeks of skidding and doing tricks, pop, i had the replace it.so far ive had almost 10 tires.anyways, i would recommend you check these out.

Would you guys recommend cyclocross tires? I deal with a lot of different kinds of terrain, road, trails, etc. I'm just worried my bike's frame is too tight for them haha Also, what kind of durability do those tires have?

@sluesserkoenig
I usually keep my fixed on the road, so I dont have any experience with cyclocross tires. What kind of frame do you have? I'm always scared I'll fuck mine up when it gets bumpy Razz.


@ topic
I'm using the Panaracer T-Serv PT in a beautiful blue color that goes with my bianchi frame. They are made for urban use, have a great weight to strength (as in very durable) ratio but they've also mastered their way from northern Germany over the Alps and to Italy, so they cant be too bad for longer runs. As you might have noticed I just like them a lot and since they're almost gone now, I'll get a new pair Smile.

I'm not really sure what "type" mine is. It's a really aggressive looking steel frame road bike thats a few years old by Giant. The cyclocross tires I saw are 75 psi whereas my Kenda Kontenders (who are quite elderly now) are 125psi, so idk if that'd be an issue there.

Tires and Stuff.

So i have some 700c x 28c there thin yes. But why is it i loose air pressure so much. I have no leaks and Have to check tires before riding every time. If i don't i can get a rim pinch and im down to an instant flat. This pisses me off and i want a wider tire!

I have 700 x 23 and notice the same thing! I figure it must just be that it's such a small volume of air and the temp rises/falls in the garage enough after a couple days that it's kind of like a kids balloon, they just loose pressure through the tubes over time?

Thats what i thought, But then i used a bike pump at my local shop. A fancy one at that, and i put air in that bitch too the max, it has stayed solid for about 4 weeks now. Now i notice the front tire getting a little bit softer as i hit bigger bumps occasionally. I try too stay on flat smooth surfaces but you know what they say...
Bumps happen.
