Hey guys, ive been slowly saving weight on my colnago m10, and the next place im looking to save weight is in tires and tubes. Im currently running pro3's and was wondering what tires are good to save weight. I dont want a paper thin tire that I cant even ride but was thinking there might be a better option out there thanks!

There are a lot of posts on tires. You have to search.
Quick answer: Veloflex corsa.

Get some Vredestein latex tubes. They are under 50g and ride excellent.

Tires on the other hand, are not a place to save weight IMO. It is certainly painful for me to mount up 250g tires (Vitt Pave), but the ride is worth every gram!

Nashbar has Vittoria Diamante Pro Lights (185 gram) for $35 right now. Not bad for a 220 tpi tire.
