Reliable, High Performance Tires

After trying Michilan's, Vittorio's, Specialized and various Conti road tires, I finally settled on the 4000S (23, 25) years ago as my go-to tire. When Conti came out with the 5000 chili's I tried them (25) and liked them! I typically ride between 3500-8000+ miles per year and that includes commute, pleasure, group, training, touring, and in the past some light racing. I also delivered Jimmy John's in downtown Indianapolis from 2012-2018 part-time on these tires (28 on my SS) as part of my quest to improve my sprinting. I mean, why not get paid to ride your bike, huh?? What I've found across the board is that these tires perform overall superior to any other brand racing/performance/endurance road tire I've ever used in the past. I've found the GP4000 and 5000 to be the perfect combination so far of durable, comfortable and performance qualities. Excellent sticky grip in cornering, reliable handling on dry, wet and even somewhat on snow, equally excellent on dirty city roads as on pristine clean roads, more comfortable on chip&seal and rattlebone roads. I usually get 3000+ miles out of a set, more if I rotate tires every few of months and actively avoid glass if possible, and bad sections of road. Nowadays most of my riding is training for my annual, multiday touring of back to back century days in the saddle, which can always include unplanned surprises in road surfaces, reroutes and detours. (I plan the routes based on where I'd like to ride and Google maps/Map-My-Ride. I do not use a touring service. I like the adventure! And I prefer a carbon road bike (coz, you know, we like to get there without taking the whole day, lol!) a lightweight backpack and a credit card for these tours - 8 under my belt now!) I always put on a new set of tires the day before Bikecation and roll without worry over what unexpected surprises the road throws at us! I find these tires to do very well, rarely flatting until pretty well worn, and getting noticeably table-topped. Only once ever have I had a sidewall blowout, and that was on an aged tire and my own, awkward-moment fault. Again, rotating the tires periodically helps them last longer than if you don't. These tires have proven to be worth the money to me, especially when i can find a great deal on pricing. But I have paid - and will pay - the $70+ normal RV if I need the tires and can't find a deal at the time, with zero regrets. Although now I stock up ahead of time when I find them on sale. And that's my review! Good riding and happy trails to you!

I've ridden on Conti's for several years. My last set was a 25mm GP5000. This time I went wider to 28mm. The tire really sticks to the road. If you air down a little with the wider tire the ride quality is great. My rims are 19mm internal and when mounted the tires measure right at 28mm or just a tiny bit over. I weigh around 155 and ride with 70 psi front and 75 psi rear. My only complaint is I've had 2 punctures in 1100 miles. I guess you can always complain about the hassle of punctures that can happen with any tire under all sorts of circumstances...however, I was hoping for a little more resistance to the common thorn or glass. I recommend them for all around riding. The weight is also good for the size and all around type use.

Over the years I have found the Continental brand the best. I get the best handling and long term use from this brand. They also look good on tire rims. I have bought the 4000 tire over the past few years. Thought Id give the 5000 a try especially since they were on sale.

I have found them to be another excellent tire from a Continental. Dont think you would make a mistake when you give them a try. I have a house in Sarasota FL and another in New Jersey. These tires are excellent on the warm fast flats in Florida. Also on the hilly terrain of central Jersey.

The first thing that I noticed was that the two little wear markers in the tread are about one half of the depth on the GP 5000 as compared to the GP 4000, so I'm not quite sure if that means that there is only one half of the tread or not. I cycle 12,000 mile per year for fitness, and don't race because I don't like broken bones and road rash, although I have weekly group rides with racers. I have never actually worn out a rear GP 4000 tire because they always gashed out first from striking rocks or debris. On the front I do wear out a GP 4000. I get about 2,000 miles per tire on the GP 5000.

I've been a fan of Conti road tires for years and these are the best clincher road tires yet. They're not the most puncture proof but I rarely have problems even with the debris strewn roads of west Los Angeles. Their suppleness is excellent and they're reasonably durable.

I have used Continental Grand Prix 4000 tires on all my bikes since they were first released and I did not think a better road tire could be produced. When I saw that the Grand Prix 5000 was being released, I ordered a pair the same day. The new tire is incredible and has lived up the the claims of faster, more comfortable, and more grip. I am impressed with the improvements.

Flat city in the rain
rating

I bought the GP 5000 based on the good reviews. Lighter and faster than GP 4000 and rode fine when the weather was nice. Unfortunately, as soon as the weather got rainy up here in Seattle, I got 3 flats in 3 rides. The little rocks stick to the softer rubber in the rain, embed themselves and work through the tire I surmise. I bought some Gatorskins for the winter and will go back to the GP 4000 S in spring. The GP 4000 S did not have flat issues in the rain last winter.

Typical Conti Quality
rating
by Dalen
Cycling Enthusiast
Washington, Utah

I ride an average of 150 miles per week. Through the years I've ridden on many tires and brands. The new 5000 is great. First thing I noticed is the more "true to size". My 25mm 4000's always measured around 28-29 after mounted...which is fine with me actually. My rims have a 19mm internal measurement. The 5000 in size 25mm with the same rims now measures about 26mm. These tires are super smooth and stick fantastic on the fast descents which is confidence inspiring. There's probably never been an absolute perfect tire but this Conti comes close to the mark. I use it for just normal everyday riding. I don't race. However, I'm competitive and push myself on most rides. My last pair of Conti, the 4000, lasted just under 3,000 miles and I only flatted once from the notorious goat thorn. With the Conti's I always switch them out way before the wear indicators are gone. If you can get a set on sale I would say there's great value for your steed.

I've been using Conti GrandPrix for years. Starting with GrandPrix 4000 and now 5000. I'll put around 4k to 5k miles on a year; all on Continental Grand Prix tires. Tire wear is very good; handling excellent. Two good notes about WesternBikeWorks; they matched a competitors with no issue plus they did a return on tires when I mistakenly bought the wrong sized tires on one order. WBW returned the tires with no hassle and shipped me the size I should have ordered. These 2 things sold me on this bike store!

Road cycling in south FL with ride lengths of 30 - 70 miles is typical for me now. Continental tires are smooth-rolling, dependable, and have a good grip on the road. I know what to expect out of them and it's the tire I look for when reordering.

Continental Still Can't Figure Out Side Wall Strength

1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

I road ride 5-7K miles a year, 6ft 205#. I've ridden Michelins, Vredesteins, Continentals, etc. I have a history with Continentals of side wall gashes, and have sworn them off numerous times. I had heard good things about the GP 5000's so thought I'd given them another look. These GP5000's are supple and hold the road well, especially on high speed descents. Fairly good at flat resistance too. Ultimately, I got 2700 miles out of the rear tire before tread wear was evident and ultimately the tire failed on a side wall nick on pavement, by just clipping a rock on the road shoulder. Ironically I was going to retire the tire at the end of the ride in question. The front failed with a side wall gash, also on pavement at 2100 miles. While I like the tire & I got reasonably good mileage out of the rear in particular. The fact that side wall gashes ended both tires lives, leaves me looking for alternatives. I have never, that I can recall, ever gotten a side wall gash that ruined any other tire, except Continentals.

I really believe that tires are one of the most important components on your bike. Tires impact comfort, performance and safety. I probably replace tires much sooner than most people, because nothing feels as great as new rubber! This means that I have experimented with about a dozen tires so far, including vittoria, panaracer, specialized, and several from continental. Nothing beats a gatorskin for a super durable, yet relatively light and fast rolling all-purpose recreation and commute tire. Until recently, the venerable Grand Prix 4-seasons was my year-around training tire and I still use them for winter training when roads are dirtier and punctures are more inconvenient. But the 5000 is my new 3-season training/performance tire. They have great rolling resistance, excellent grip (especially on dry pavement, but also on wet) and are have a soft flexible tire bed to smooth the road and conform to its surface. I was surprised to see that they are actually not much lighter (about 10 grams) than the 4-seasons, but they faster and overall better. I have to say, their claims to offer more puncture resistance than a 4-seasons (I've even seen comparisons to a gatorskin!) have not borne out for me. But they are much more puncture resistant than other performance tires such as the 4000s. So I continue to keep a set of 4-seasons for November-March, but the rest of the year the 5000 is my new favorite.

The Conti GP 5000 are my tires for racing and everyday riding. I have ridden on Conti GP 4000 tires for a number of years and really liked them, but the 5000's are even better. I find they grip the road really well in corners and all conditions. They are also faster (less rolling resistance) - so if you are looking for a little more speed try them out.

I have used these tires for 12 years and I've never had problems. Lots of chip seal, lots of crap in bike lanes and even ride on some forestry roads and that's tires perform better than I could have ever expected!! I have gotten 6800 miles on 1 set of these tires this year and the wear dots probably have another 2000 miles to go. They have handled exceptional well in the Oregon rain! I highly recommend these tires!
