Replacing Michelin's popular City Tire, the Protek takes up right where this venerable tire left off.

With a tread that is optimized to roll smoothly and still provide grip on both pavement and dirt roads, this tire proves its worth commuting and touring. Its 1mm thick reinforcement also helps keep road debris at bay, so if all goes to plan, commutes will go without a hitch (or at least without a flat). A reflective strip on the sidewall also lends some extra visibility for added safety during low light conditions.

The Michelin Protek 700c Tire is available in 700c x 28, 32, 35, 38, and 40mm sizes (ISO 28-622, 32-622, 37-622, 40-622, 42-622). Please note that in the larger sizes the ISO measurement is 2mm larger than the common (700c) size printed on the sidewall.

I ride 30 plus miles a day for pleasure in and around Michigan's trails. These tires are superior in ride and performance to my previous tires. The narrow band white wall looks good and glows at night for added safety.

I have a town bike with big folding panniers and a large rack bag that I use to get groceries (just fits two large bags of groceries and a six-pack in the rack bag) - about 40 lb with no load. These tires carry the load easily yet are lighter and have much lower rolling resistance than the others I have tried on this bike. I absolutely recommend them!

We bought the 32mm Protek from WesternBikeWorks as a Deal of the day. We have it on the rear wheel of our road tandem to see if a lower pressure wider tire will reduce vibration compared to 28mm Gatorskins. Team and tandem weigh just under 400 pounds and we wear rear tires quickly. Weve put over 700 miles on the Protek and were very pleased with the ride, rolling resistance and flat protection.

I only have had them on my bike for a couple hundred miles, but Ive put them through the wringer. They have great traction in wet and sloppy weather and provide an ultra-smooth ride over chuckhole-covered streets. These were a perfect investment to allow me to ride my cross bike year round.

They remind me of much more expensive touring tires sold by a German manufacturer. They roll well and have nice rounded shoulders for leaning into turns. Other reviewers had noted they run a bit large. I generally run 35s and that is the size I bought but my bike has very minimal brake and fender clearance and If I get another set they will be 32s. Otherwise I am completely pleased.

I ride 22 miles per day on the street for exercise. Rarely miss a day. Protek tires last me about a year, maybe even a little longer. I like the reflective belt on the sidewall. Rarely get a flat and usually it's because I'm using the tire past it's replacement point ( I tend to run them kinda bald...)

I've had these tires on my daily commuter for the last 5 weeks and I love them. They roads here in Nashville are garbage and these tires have held up to the daily punishment of them. They're solid in the wet and don't kick up too much of a rooster tail. I would definitely buy these again, and will when they wear out.

Been running the 38mm tires for 19 months, it has made a world of difference compared to the OEM set! After about 800 miles of mostly pavement with some gravel, not even 1 puncture or even a flat! The tires have stayed on the rims since I first put them on. However, recently (800 miles) they have developed a bulge with torn threads on the sidewall which will surely blow out soon. Was hoping for a longer lifespan, but they were great while they lasted.

I use this tire to bike daily on asphalt roads (12 miles). I like the reflective sidewall stripe. Excellent price. Easy to put on. Will see how they hold up, mileage and flat wise, versus the Continentals I have been using.

Love Michelin tires but the Protek didn't meet my expectations for this quality manufacturer. Bought a set of 700cX28mm for Winter road riding for the gravel bike. One is still going strong at 1800 miles, the other blew out the sidewall after about 1500 miles while on a local century ride. Had some difficulties getting the tires to mount and seat on tubeless rims using tubes as well.

Got a set of these for $XXX each on the daily special, an unbelievable steal. I'm riding the 40mm 7 days a week for about 6 months now. I can' say enough good about these tires except I'd replace them again at full price in a heartbeat. I like to over inflate all my tires, rock hard. They roll great and track really good on turns, and off road. They mount easy, and have lived through a brutally hot summer here in S.C. on chip-seal roads well over 100 degrees carrying 230 pound loads with ease. These could be the best tires I have EVER rode staying in the moderately priced tire range. I weigh about 175 and carry tools and groceries regularly. I can't believe these got ANY negative reviews, take those with a grain of salt. Or did I get the best set ever made?
