Not looking for a best tub debate, but i think tyres are subjective to local conditions.
Which tyre do you find best in terms of puncture resistance, wear, comfort etc?
Been using Vittoria Corsa CR for a couple of years which are ok, but not great.
Wont be for racing, but everyday riding in Victoria, on mainly chip & seal roads, lots of quartz and glass, the usual stuff.
For training and racing : Conti Competitions - I've had good luck with these not getting cut to bits (unlike Schwalbe) and Vittoria Pave's work well and ride softer.
And, when there's a 750mL bottle worth of brown glass shattered liberally over both lanes, looking where you're going won't save you.

vredestein seem to last much longer, and i have i bought a pair for the missus and myself and were are both still running them, they've done twice the life span of vittoria so far and are still running.
a mate of my is sending me a set of challenge tubs...as much i would love them i think they might just disappoint )-;
As they have a butyl tube they are easily repaired with tufo sealant, unlike Vittorias which have a latex tube which goes flat over time and therefore sometimes the sealant just goesn't stick.
I'm also in SA, and glass is everywhere....

Not to hijack, but are the Schwalbe tires you are referring to the Ultremo HT- or the Durano T-series? I've been looking for some first hand knowledge on the latter for mile eater purposes myself, getting tired of the Gatorskins (for no particular reason).
I continue to run conti comp 22 and 25, and the gp4000 tub...
All seem ideally suited to crap Aussie roads with dip shits throwing glass
Everywhere, surfers paradise... Retards retreat more like... Anyhow.....
