    Comments about Continental Grand Prix Wire Bead Road Tire:

    This is the most durable tire bare none I ordered these Continental Grand Prix again after getting 10,000 miles out of the last set. I annually ride 10,000 - 12,000 miles a year. I've ridden on Hutchinson's tires & Mitchelins (Lithium 2) and usally get 3,000- 4,000 miles. I rotate my tires, even though my mechanic recommends against it. I replace tires when the sidewalls deteriorate or the rubber gets so thin I get multiple flats in one week.

    A !#$%# to put on but no more flats!

      Comments about Continental Grand Prix Wire Bead Road Tire:

      These were an absolute nightmare to put on, but since I have put them on I haven't had a single flat over several hundred miles. I am just hoping that streak continues because I am not looking forward to having to take them off or on again. Hopefully, they will loosen up with time so that it would be easier.

        Comments about Continental Grand Prix Wire Bead Road Tire:

        So far these tires have been great over 200+ miles. Great value. The only things I can note are that they have a bit of a mohawk of excess rubber from casting that needs to wear off before the tire is completely smooth (probably normal for a lot of tires), and they also seem to run slightly narrow: I measured the 700x25 at 24.0mm width on a standard road bike rim.

        Typically I have not had problems with contie's, this must have been a flat spot taco shell special with a bulging side wall. I have some on my commuter and love them super durable and great for the job, I even used them in my first couple races years ago and not bad! Awesome product just got a bad egg this time. I am sure nashbar will work it out for me soon.

        Too Small and Hard to Change

            Comments about Continental Grand Prix Wire Bead Road Tire:

            In general, I prefer Continental to other tire brands, but these were a very VERY tight fit on my Mavic MA2 rims and actually took a couple of people to mount -- a nightmare to change when and if I got a flat (which I did, immediately). Just a couple of defective tires and an exception to the generally high standard set by Continental tires? I don't know, but I'd be careful before buying.

            Comments about Continental Grand Prix Wire Bead Road Tire:

            4 stars because of the weight penalty of a wire bead but these tires are what I finally have determined have the right mix of durability, puncture resistance and comfort me. I'm 6-1, 185 lbs and the super plush 300 TPI tires flat on me too much (looking at you Michelin Pro's!) but I don't need full on Gatorskins...

                  I used to ride a lot. I mean all the time. Now I ride with my grandchildren. My old tires were fast road tires. But alias dry rot set in over the years of none use. These were priced right. They ride nice and seem to be OK. My grand kids were getting to fast on their bikes for me to walk. I just pace them now. I'm sure these will last a long time. Thanks
