And for the aesthetically minded, there's surely a color scheme on tap to perfectly match your favorite road rig's palette. Accept no substitutes if an excellent all-around tire that can handle the rigors of tough training and racing is what your road bike requires.

          I found these tires two years ago and they have been the longest lasting tires I have had. Don't know why but very seldom flat out and they last for hundreds of miles. I may have learned to avoid the c&*p on the road but they are now my tire of choice.

              I bought these for a new set of rims. Unfortunately after 3 hours of trying to mount them and puncturing the inner tubes 5 times I gave up and mounted my old Michelim tires with no problems. With logging 10,000 miles a year this is not my first rodeo when it comes to mounting tires. These have to be the worst tires that I have ever tried to mount. So, at the present time the Vittoria's are hanging out in my garage collecting dust.

                These tires are great"
                Thick tire puncture resist and smooth rolling, and soak up road vibrations. Very stable in rain conditions for a slick tire. Confident traction on the wet roads, turns well with confidence. Ide recommend these tires for riders who like to go on long meandering country side tours.

                I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled these tires on both front and rear wheels. A really tough job to get the tire seated on the rim and equally difficult to remove. Once they are on, however, I think they are great. Smooth, good in corners, lightweght.

                  These tires are great on the road. Smooth rolling and absorbs much of the road vibrations while improving the bikes handling. Handled wet road well for slicks.

                    Its a pleasure to ride, lightweight and smooth, but they don't last more than 500-700 miles. The sidewall cracks easily.

                        Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

                        I've enjoyed every set of Vittoria tires I've owned. My bike came with Vittoria Corsa CX tires, which were fantastic, but they only lasted 1,200 miles (good for a racing tire). The Rubino Pro Slick III's perform almost as well, but they last much longer (900 miles w/ very little wear) and they're more affordable. In a nutshell: low rolling resistance, good cornering grip, no issues in the wet. These tires are a bargain. I'm 210 lbs and I inflate them to 115 psi.

                          I tried both the 120 tpi and now these 150 tpi.
                          Wow these feel much smoother, it tends to soak up more bumps.Taking the imperfections in road conditions and making the bike feel less buzzy vibration. I can descend and hold my line better around a 10 percent grade hill and then turn a sharp corner with full grip control ;) And when i go to the laughing place hill thats like 30 percnt grade and shoot the the twisties wow better than disneyland space mountain ride.

                          I'm 205 lbs & ride 400 - 800 miles per month. These tires ride wonderfully; they corner & accelerate better than just about all other tires I've tried but my rear tire wore through to the cords in just a few months which is alarmingly fast. The front tire is still in good shape & I did purchase a replacement for the rear. I keep these set aside for the odd century or when I think I need an edge. Otherwise I'm quite happy with Michelin Krylons. The Vitoria tire rides much better, but the Krylons last & last. Flat resistance is equally good with either tire.
