I think all tires have certain good and bad qualities. After using GP3000 (sidewalls were weak and seemed to fail) and Michelin Pro Race2 (very difficult to install but nice). My overall favorite tires have been the Fortezza Tri-comps, they roll very nice, are durable and I rode 1800 miles without a flat. I had on older model a few years ago that lost the shape and got a bulge in it, but the newer models seem to have improved that defect. I enjoy putting them around 140 and they are fast. Very nice assortment of colors too is a plus. The weight is comparable to other similar priced tires.
