    Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

    They would get a 5 if they were easier to mount. I have about 1000 miles on them now. No flats despite the fact that one of my more common loops takes me through the glass strewn French Quarter early on weekend mornings. The outer rubber has some serious cuts and gouges, but the inner belt has stopped the sharp objects cold. These tires are an incredible value. Just wish Vittoria would increase the bead diameter fractionally so that they would be easier to mount.

        Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

        I love these tires, I've ridden them for years. They are able to hold up to thousands of miles of all season use HOWEVER, Nashbar packages and ships the tires in a way that permanently creases the wire bead, resulting in improper mounting and an uneven rolling surface. Buyer beware. I recommend it these tires from elsewhere.

            Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

            Seem to ride well enough, average rolling resistance for this size/pressure range. Levering the bead over the rim took more effort than usual, but beads seated quickly and securely as tire was inflated.

                This is the second pair of Zaffiros I've bought. First pair saw a good
                bit of mileage; very pleased with them. They do seem a bit small and
                were difficult to fit on my rims. Maybe it was my rims? I would still
                buy them again. Great price on a great tire.

                    I am an enthusiastic recreational rider who turns up the wick every now and then. Many of my rides are in New Orleans where the roads are in horrible shape and debris litters the streets. I haven't had the tires too long yet, but so far they are great. At this point they compare well to Gatorskins and Hard Case Lites in performance and feel, but they do it for a fraction of the cost. They are a challenge to mount. If I flat, it won't be any fun dealing with these on the side of road.

                    I didn't realize they were going to be so heavy but for casual use they should last forever. Mounting them was not easy since the bead is so tight. Hopefully any flats will occur in the driveway or very close to home.

                        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.
