      Hard to find low priced decent tires. This one seems to fill the bill so far. I bought this with black walls which I prefer over the gum walls.

        Put 70 solid miles on the Ultrasports today. Solid feel throughout the ride. Yet to really rail on them, so stay tuned for further updates.

          I do commute on these a day or two a week but would consider something designed for puncture resistance if that is what you are looking for. I purchased these fixing up a 1990 Trek on the cheap. I'm glad I got them because I've been quite happy with their performance over about 500 miles. There is not much wear at this point, no punctures, not much to say. I'm sure they don't grip like a race tire (and they do weigh about 400g in 700x28), I'm sure they don't have the puncture resistance of an armadillo or the longevity of a lithion, but if price is what you are after this isn't a bad choice. They also did 2 hours on the trainer without turning to dust and were quiet for that.

            Although not as puncture resistant as Gatorskins they have a smooth ride as a higher priced tires. My first set gave me good wear for a good price.

            This tires are great training tires! They are durable, and I rarely, if ever, get flats with them. The roads around here have a lot of pot holes, and are very rough. These tires inspire confidence in these road conditions. The best part is, they are very economical and last a long time. They wouldn't be a great racing tire, though. They are pretty heavy.

            Roll nice, wear quickly

              Comments about Continental Ultra Sport II Road Tire:

              Bought a pair of these This spring. At $20 a tire I wasn't expecting much and these delivered my expectations. The good: Nice soft compound and decent ride, decent rolling resistance. The bad: My 25c rear tire wore to the cords in just a tick over 1000 miles. It was on it's last ride and the sidewall cut down, so it was retired.
              I'm a definite clyde though at 240# so that sort of wear on a cheap tire is normal. Over the 1000 miles I had 4 flats 2 pinch, a wire, and the final cut sidewall. Average weight riders might have better luck. Good quality construction.
