GP 4 Seasons

I have commuted on GP 4 Season 28s for about 5 years. They have been durable with very few flats. They are also reasonably light weight, handle well and get good traction on wet roads. However, I am still testing other brands because the GP 4s are so expensive and run so much narrower than spec'd. Tire width is important when commuting on rough pavement, and the GP 4s narrow width makes them ride harsher than wider tires. My 28s measure close to 26mm wide on Open Pro and DT Swiss wheels.

Pros: Durability, flat resistance, traction

Cons: Narrow width, ride harsher than other 28s

The best tire for my needs

I use my road bike only when I can't get to the woods, so I'm not too concerned with the weight of my rig. These are great tires to use on New Orleans's terrible road surfaces and handle road debris about as good as can be expected. I can get ~1500 miles to a rear and about twice as much to a front.

Pros: Durable.

just above average.

I have had the 4 Seasons on my rear wheel for about 600-700 miles on it.
It's a good tire, but considering the price, it's just above average performer.
The wet weather traction is just a little better than some cheaper tires I have ridden. But defiantly a bit over rated.
I have not had a flat for the time I had it.
Rides nice and quit and not too much rolling resistance.
Only reason I am replacing mine is, I skidded out accidentally and tore up the tire.

Pros: Rides good, potentially long mileage tire, a sure bet for a good all around tire.

Cons: Simply over priced, wet weather traction is a bit over rated, IMO.

the 25mm is my tire of choice. True to size with a great feel for the road.

Excellent Tires

I have purchased these tires for several years and have simply not found any tire that can compare to this tire's performance and long term durability. If you rotate the tire's around every 1,000 miles they will provide thousands of miles of mileage. I have logged 4,000 miles out of a set of these before replacement. The roads where I live are chip-and-seal surface, which is tough on tire's, however; these stand up to the job.

Pros: Long-term durability, performance, and excellent wet weather performance characteristics. Excellent cornering capability.

Cons: It is challenging to mount the rear wheel due to wheel dish, and kevlar bead.

Use the 28mm ones for my commuting bike, no flats yet in the last year with these. They seem better than most in the wet too.
Make sure you run them at a reasonable pressure, not the max. I weigh 190 lbs. and run front @ 75 psi, rear @ 90.

Pros: great tire, reasonably light, good traction in all conditions, very flat resistant.

Cons: Pricey

Good in Wet, Very Tough

I've been commuting and touring on these tires for the past year and a half, and have been very pleased. They are very durable, have had very few flats despite running through rough roads, gravel, and sometimes glass. And their weight is very acceptable.

Rolling resistance is a little high, but acceptable considering their good traction on wet pavement.

I have had several pair, and they each have lasted between 2,000 and 3,000 miles.

Pros: Excellent toughness over rough roads and gravel, good weight, and good wet traction.

Cons: More rolling resistance, but not unexpected considering the good wet traction.

We've switched our road bikes to these tires after a few too many cuts and punctures. While not the lightest, I'm wanting to ride without sitting in the ditch fixing another flat. Rolls well, feels solid and seems to hold up well. This is a quality tire that is good for training, commuting and touring. I've taken it off pavement for short trips and it has been fine. I find the balance of a bit more weight worth the solidity of this tire.

Pros: Strong tire, rolls well, long lasting.

Cons: A bit more weight as trade-off for stronger tires.

After about a year of having these tires on 2 bikes, large portions of the sidewall protection mesh gradually became separated from the rubber on all 4 tires, and severe cracking developed nearly all the way around the tire where the sidewall mesh meets the tread. I ride low intensity recreational riding around town, I ride them at 115 psi and store my bikes out of direct sunlight.



Pros: No flats yet, but because of the severe cracking I have zero confidence in these tires and had to replace them way too early.

Cons: They are the worst value for the money, I'm totally surprised that Conti markets such a bad product.

I have these tires on every bike I commute on in the winter. I previously used the Ultra Gatorskins but these work better in the wet and have better flat protection. Right now I have them on 3 bikes. They don't roll as good as the Gatorskins and don't last as long, but I never get flats and I feel more confident in the winter with these tires. They have a nice ride, much much better then Specialized Armadillos.

Pros: Great flat protection, very competent in winter weather

Cons: Don't last as long as other commuter tires

28c

nice rolling tires, great for wet weather. actual size is about 25mm on a open pro rim.

after about a month of ownership I had a front pinch flat and the tire bead ripped open. it was about a 3 inch tear. I was very disappointed, as these are very expensive tires.

i dont know whether it was a bad batch or what, but I just could not feel comfortable with keeping the rear on as well. So I switched to a different set of tires altogether.

Great Traction in Wet & Cold Conditions

This tire seems to have great traction on wet, cold pavement. And they are lightweight enough to make your bike feel snappy.

I don't ride tires skinnier than 28mm, and this is one of the best, lightweight 28s available.

Pros: Good traction in tough conditions.

Cons: A little expensive.

These have not been my favorite tires. They have good traction in the wet but the rolling resistance is very high. After only a couple hundred miles on the winter bike, I changed them out for GP4000s and have been much happier with them. The puncture protection on the 4000s seems to be much better and the rolling resistance is much lower. Unless you have problems with sidewall cuts, I would recommend the GP4000 before I would ride these.

Pros: Good wet traction.
Good sidewall protection.

Cons: High rolling resistance.
Needs better puncture protection.
