    I'm just about down to the casing on my rear Vittoria Diamante Pro. I really liked these tires. Any suggestions, or should I just replace with the same?

    Something on closeout, perhaps?

    I like the Vredstein Fortezza SEs that are always on sale. They don't last as long, but I like the oxymoron of less rolling resistance, but somehow grippier in the fast turns.

    I really do like them. They roll nice, grip well, last decently, aren't too heavy, and I've had good luck not flatting them.

    I wonder if that means anything...

    Soma Fabrications (somafab.com) makes some nice tires... Low rolling resistance and better than armadillo protection. You can also get the sidewalls in snazzy colors. If you do a little hunting around, you can get them cheaper than listed on the soma website.
