      Like this brand better than any other brand in this price point. Bike came with Pro Series tires in this brand. I have used several other brands bought on sale but always end up coming back to Vittoria

          I have these tires on my other bike as well. I have about 2000 miles on the other set and they are holding up fine. I believe that this is a case of inexpensive with some quality. I have never had a problem to this point. Now I am an avid recreational cyclist not someone that is seriously training for anything. I just enjoy riding my bike as fast as I can for as long as I can 4 to 7 times a week.

            Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

            I'm an occasional rider, I've put just under 100 miles on them and so far, no issues.
            As others have mentioned, yes it's a bit of a pain to install them in the rim since they feel a bit tight, but nothing impossible to do.
            I can't say for their reliability since I had them for only 3 weeks.
            All is well so far.

              I needed an affordable set of tires for my road bike that could handle some rough conditions to train and even race on between events and these tires rally perform. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a really good tire at an affordable price you will use mainly for training.

                Seemed like a good value but it wore through the tread in less than 150 miles. Other tires last 10 times longer. Very disappointing.

                Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

                I have the 23s. I have had these tires for over 6 count them years they have never failed me. The battery on my cateye mity 8 ran out before the tires did. I have no idea how many miles I have on them now.

                Since I changed the battery I now have over 700 miles on them. I attribute the reason why to the fact that I rotate them every 2 to 4 hundred miles. They have got to wear out someday but not today.

                The only drawback is they are hard to mount. VERY HARD I just take them to the bike shop when I want to rotate them or if I have a flat. That way I will not damage the tires somehow

                They do well on pavement.They accelerate and corner well. They even do well in wet weather. on gravel like on the trinity trail in Ft Worth they do ok. Just go slower due to braking they will slide especially the back. Even though you planted at the rear of the seat.

                GET THEM IF YOU ALREADY HAVEN'T !

                • Commuting
                • Serious Racing/Training

                Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

                Bought these because I've had good luck with the Vittoria brand. I like the fact that you can pressurize them to 145 psi. One caveat, however. The wire bead on these tires makes them particularly tricky to put on. I punctured two tubes installing them, before I realized it was due to my technique. Not a big deal but I've never had that happen before. So far I'm happy with them, especially for the price.

                I'm not the aggressive rider I was in my youth so I can't give a fair assessment of cornering or how they'll perform in the rain but I think they're a great buy for most riders.

                I have been riding on these tires for a few years now and had a rear flat. I was able to finish the ride of about 1 1/2 miles on the flat tire, put a new tube in it and am still riding on it.

                  This is a good and solid training tire. It has phenomenal flat and cut resistance and appears to have relatively low rolling resistance. This is a good choice for a basic tire.
