I love Continental tires but was disappointed with the quick wear and constant sidewall cuts I was getting on my 4000s tires. I decided to try the Grand Prix 4 season as a last chance with Continental. I do a LOT of riding and was tired of changing flats. since I switched to the Grand Prix 4 Season, I have not had a single flat. The tires wear like steel (i.e. long tread life!) and are tough. I ride in all conditions, year round in Colorado and regardless of the gravel and debris I encounter, these tires can take it!
The Continental Gator tires are great!! I had them on my first road bike and now on my second road bike. Very durable and feel confident that I won't have flat tires. Highly recommend them. Also put them on my husband's bike and he likes them too!!
This was my first order from Western Bike Works. My order arrived quickly, this impressed me especially since I live on the East Coast. The tires mounted quickly and worked great. Great traction on multiple surfaces and were very true with little to no runout. These tires put new life in my vintage Diamondback!
Extreme durability, over 10,000 road miles on two different front tires, and usually about 4,000 miles from rear tires. Average about 3,000 miles between flats. And the weight is reasonable as well.
