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.

Protek is good tire and a good value.

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 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 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'm a big fan of these. I replaced the stock tires that came on by bike that were more of a hybrid tire with a small knobby tread pattern for running on loose gravel and such. They were fine for pavement but not ideal.

The Proteks are pretty amazing on pavement and don't immediately loose grip if you get into the sandy grit on the side of the road. They have good low rolling resistance and are nice and quiet (after break in...more on that later) I probably wouldn't want to do a gravel trail for more than 10-15 miles in these, but that's not what they are made for. For street use and commuting with the occasional cut across a grass area or loose gravel in the street, these are perfect. So 100% street use I'd go with a more slick tread than these. These are great for knowing you'll do the occasional non pavement)

For an occasional rail trail or other compact stonedirt ride under 20 miles they are fine. There's just enough tread pattern to give you some bite. If you want to go soft dirt or loose gravel a lot these probably don't have the tread you'd need.

The reflective strip is nice. It's very visible in the dark when standing behind a bright light source (like a driver in a car).

The tread is fine on wet pavement. My first ride on these was in the rain and they held fine and cornered well even with the mold grease still on them.

They are a little on the heavy side, but I found that's offset by the slicker tread pattern. They are heavier because they are durable. The tread is thick and unlikely to puncture easily. And the sidewalls are thick too, making them less likely to cut or tear. The thick sidewall also reduces the shock absorption, so it's a slightly rougher ride on any kind of rough terrain. But if you're riding on pavement like these are meant for that's a non issue.

These do some with a coating on them from the factory that has to wear off before you really get a true feel for the tire. It's a grease that they coat the rubber mold with so the finished tire pops out easily. The grease layer on these is thicker than most other tires. I've heard that Michelin leaves a thicker grease coating on than other brands. So for the first few miles they might squeak a little, especially when turning, at least until that grease layer wears off. It's not gooey to the touch or anything. It's dry. It just has to wear off before you get a better feel for the tire. I found it was gone within about 10 miles.

Sizes 35mm and up run bigger than the size shown. I got the 35mm tires and they run about 37 mm wide when mounted and inflated. That's EXACTLY as stated on BireTiresDirect's listing. See the chart that shows sizes 32mm and smaller run true. Sizes 35mm and up add 2mm to the total width over the stated width

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.

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?

Middle of the road tire, perhaps problems with stitching

I enjoyed these tires for about 1,000mi with no issues.

Afterwards, I started experiencing issues with gunshot flats, just a sudden loud pop. It happened no matter what kind of tubes I installed. While I never quite found the issue causing this, I noticed the stitching by the wire bead coming loose, and I saw my tube protruding from the tire. I had to get rid of the tires. There is a chance that the wire bead became exposed.

This may have been a fluke, otherwise I would be giving it much lower ratings. I still trust Michelin, so don't rule this tire out if you're on a budget. Otherwise, maybe go for the higher end models of this tire.

Have not had the tires long but put a couple hundred miles on them with no wear to speak of and no other issues. To soon to see the overall performance but cant see any issues. Hold air well go puncture resistance so far. Will see this fall when our Goat head thorns start dropping. These do have a slight howl to them no matter the air pressure but not bad. Very smooth rolling. Would highly recommend.
