      Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Pro SE Road Tire:

      I've used Zaffiro Pros before and have found them to be a decent, even respectable, tire. Those tires have the rather gaudy red sidewall label that is pictured here (as of 04/15). The Zaffiro Pro tires I received, however, are of a very different construction. I've put about 150 miles on one pair and I keep lowering the pressure trying to reproduce the compliant ride of my earlier Zaffiro Pros. Alas, but these new tires have managed to turn my early season steel-is-real training bike into the punishing ride of my high performance aluminum bike (and this is with the 25mm version - I can't imagine what the 23mm are like). They do seem to roll rather well, but at a cost. You might like them, but I'm returning the second pair in search of something with more supple sidewalls. Be advised that the earlier reviews here may be of a completely different tire.

        I use this for my front tire. Works great. I typically change the rear tire ( continental grand prix 4000) two or three times before the front wears out

            Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Pro SE Road Tire:

            I replaced the stock tires and put these on my Fuji Gran Fondo (size 700 x 25). They have performed very well on a variety of surfaces including some rough asphalt roads (bone jarring at times). They roll well, corner well and have shown little wear. Typical Vittoria quality - no flats. They're great tires - no need to spend twice as much on others that don't perform any better.

                Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Pro SE Road Tire:

                I've been using these tires for the last 2 1/2 seasons (6500 - 7500 miles a year). They hold up quite well, I typically get around 3500 miles of use per pair. The cornering is decent, the weight is reasonable and they do what a training tire is suppose to do... get you home every ride. I run them at 105psi and I weigh 185lbs. They will get a flat spot after around 500 miles, but so will most tires. I typically rotate them at 1000 miles and then again after another 1500-2000. When you burn through a couple pairs of tires every year it's just not worth droping twice as much money for a tire that saves you 10 or 20 grams.

                  Good value. Have used much higher price tires in the past. I will continue to purchase these; they perform just as well if not better.

                        i have not mounted these tires, but they look good. i bought them based on other very good reviews and like to keep a new pair around for when the ones on the bike start flatting from all the glass on the street in chicago. expensive ones go flat too and i like the price point of these.

                          Yes, this is my 2nd pair of these tires. I bought the first pair earlier this year for my touring bike. Now, 1,000+ miles later I got another set for my road bike. Even with 1,000 miles they are still not looking all that worn, even with many miles on a tour with VERY rough roads. No flats. Have yet used them in rain, so can not comment on that feaure. Mounted this new pair on my Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheels without a problem. Happy with these tires and the price.

                          I was pleasantly surprised at how noticeably faster these are then the wire bead Zaffiro's I have had previously. Those tires lasted for over 1800 miles with no flats. Since these have the same rubber, I expect them to wear well too. I've gained at least 1/2 MPH with these tires. The only issue is that I really wanted the splashy red and green logo shown in the picture. What I got was a sedate silver logo instead. Not a deal breaker though.
