Tyres are one area where most choices are about trade-offs, so it’s important to really assess your needs. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice.
