Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro 27x1 1/8-inch Road Tire:

I bought these for my 1983-era 12 speed in the 27x1 1/8 size. The tires have 2500 miles on them and are still going strong. The front tire is showing little wear. The back tire looks pretty worn, but it looked that way 1000 miles ago. I'm going to keep it on until I start seeing tire cord.
I didn't have any more trouble putting these on than any other tires I've used. I keep them inflated to 100 psi and haven't had any issues with popping off the rims.
The tires are a little heavy, but so is my bike and so am I.
I'll definitely buy these again.

    A VERY TIGHT FIT ON MY MAVIC G-40 RIMS! THE GOOD NEWS IS I NOW DON'T NEED TO CARRY A SPAIR TUBE OR TOOLS TO CHANGE A FLAT AS THERE IS NO WAY THAT I COULD/WOULD CHANGE IT ON THE ROAD!

        I ride a vintage steel frame with 27 inch wheels so bought the 27" x 1 1/8" tires. I've probably ridden 100 miles on these tires and they are a good durable tire suited to the club riding I do.

            Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro 27x1 1/8-inch Road Tire:

            It's a quality tire in a 27-inch size, and they're inexpensive. Since I needed a 27 incher for the old 10-speed I scored, this was a pretty easy decision. It's a reasonably good-looking tire, seems to ride just fine in the limited time I've spent on them. I'd read customer reviews that reported it was hard to mount these tires, and those people were not wrong. My daughter and I had to tag-team the first one; the second I managed to get on all by myself, but not without an impressive amount of effort. I would not let that dissuade me from buying this tire--rather, I'd encourage any other purchasers to persevere because it WILL go on the rim and it will be worth it. That being said, I'm hoping I never, ever have a flat.

            I couldn't get them to stay on my rims

            By oknr618

            from Parrish, FL

            Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro 27x1 1/8-inch Road Tire:

            I bought a pair of these a couple of years ago. I put these on bicycles that I generally rode on weekend rides, 20 or 30 miles. I liked the ride, they rode rather smoothly, but I just couldn't get them to stay on my rims. (Well may they did ok when I kept the pressure under 75 psi.) I put them on old Weinmann rims first, later on two sets of Wobbler modele 58 rims(three different bicycles, all circa 1970s.) Twice one tire came of the rim waiting (days)for me to get back to be put on the bicycle, a few times miles from home. I am sure I spent more on replacement tubes than on the tires. I did learn to carry a spare tube and a pump of some sort at all times.
            It looks like most people had positive experiences; I am glad for that, but this was my experience.

              Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro 27x1 1/8-inch Road Tire:

              I bought these tires to build up my 1983 College bike. The tires I had on it would pop off the side rim around 60 pounds of pressure. These tires are rated at 100 psi and I have been running them at 80 psi on my vintage bike and have had no problems. I have this same brand on my Cannondale CAAD9 and run them at 110 front and 120 in the back. However the rims are different. By the way, I weigh 215 so these tires aren't living the life of Riley...

              A feel good tire that cracked at the side-wall in what I consider 'scary.'

              I've placed 800 miles and still going strong. Have yet to have a flat. Keep them at max pressure, sure to get you over the hills. Place some baby powder on the rim, they need to stretch abit. Great tire will purchase again!

                    I can't comment on performance since they have not been installed yet. The photo in the ad is apparently of the Zaffiro Pro instead of the Zaffiro that I received. I purchased the tires because I have Rubinos in 700x23 on another bike and have been happy with ride, wear, and durability; they have the same style sidewall marking as the photo in the ad, so I felt confident it was similar construction (belting, etc.) but lower thread count. Now I wonder if the description in the ad (specifically belting) is correct or not, since the tires shipped do not have Kevlar or aramid belting marking on the sidewall.

                      These are quality 27" tires...I'm happy I found these in the 27'1/8 size as it has noticeably decreased the rolling resistance compared to my Bontrager 27" 1/4 tires. My '86 Centurion has the aluminum Araya hooked rims, and these work well with the wire bead. For the price, these are a great value as they are pretty durable without the added weight of armadillos. I hope Vittoria doesn't stop making these. My Nashbar customer service experience has been excellent so far.
