These tires converted me back to road tubeless

I had tried out road tubeless a few years back and had a bad time. Two seasons of non-stop punctures which wouldn't seal and paper thin, expensive tires.

I decided to give it another shot with these Rubino Pro TLR tires, and a different sealant. What a difference! I've only noticed the rear going soft once in two seasons, over two sets of tires--- it sealed permanently. I put about 5,000 miles on that set before I noticed a few threadbare spots on the rear. The front still has a few thousand miles left in it by my measure. My other pair has about 3,000 miles on them and the rear tire appears to be about halfway worn. I would rate these for 5-6,000 miles at 80-90 PSI (rear) with a 165 lb. rider. The front tire lifespan is TBD, but my guess is about 7-8,000 miles under those same conditions.

I had always stayed away from tires with a tread pattern for fear of collecting tiny rocks, metal, or glass, but the tire seems robust enough that they have never had issues. Anyway, the pattern wears away anyway leaving me with the "no tread" pattern I want anyway.

Mounting the tires is a bit tight but manageable. My tactic is to make sure to push the seated bead all the way against the opposite side of the rim before attempting the next bead. It does require a tire lever at the end, and maybe an old toe strap or two. They're no worse than other tight tires I've had. One downside of the very tight bead is that it's hard to crack open, and keep open, the tire bead to add sealant, if you don't have removable valve cores to add through. Seating the bead is straightforward on my tubeless-ready rims and don't require anything more than soapy water, if that. I use an air compressor to seat them at 120 PSI, leave overnight, then deflate and set them at 90 PSI for riding.

I don't push my bike handling to such an extreme that I can "feel" the difference between tire compounds or TPI, so I won't pretend to offer advice on that here. I can say that I've never felt a lack of basic traction, as I have with some other, hard compound tires.

Considering my track record with these tires, their price and availability, I'll likely keep buying these until they stop making them. If you're having a bad time with tubeless road, give these a shot. They just might change your mind.

you are going to sweat

The tires roll very well and I love the plush feel when mounted tubeless on my aero bike (yes I know tubeless 30 mm on an aero bike... but I am now in need of comfort!). Good cornering, only put 100 miles on it, but they don't seem to wear off fast.

That said, these tires made me sweat. A lot. Like I have never sweat this hard to put on a tubeless, and I came across some very bad combination. I am using a lezyne floor pump with air canister, that can go up to 220 psi and never let me down so far. The first tire seat with some difficulties, but after for tries it was done.

The second one ... oh boy ... tried 6 times to pump up the canister up to 200220 psi, nothing worked. So I took a tube put it in, put the tire back on and pop the beam into place. Something I do with difficult set-up, so I was annoyed but still in a good mood. Time to unseat one size and remove the tube... right ... unseat the tire ... That took a while. Bruised my fingers, bend a couple of nails (no I don't have long nails) tried every tool I had. After 2 hours of trying things and big breaths to avoid throwing the wheel our of the window... I put my bike shoes on, blocked the tire on the floor with all my weight on it, and twisted the wheel. A few tries later, after having hit my ankles with the rim several times (yes it hurts), I finally managed to free part of the tire. With half of the tire already seated it was pretty easy to seat the rest of it, but boy... I was almost giving up...

hard to mount...no kidding

I thought it was just me or the rim I was using but no joke...these tires are hard to mount. My fingers hurt now typing this review from the hour or so it took me to mount the tires on the rim last night. On the other hand, they did seat quickly, one without any sealant, the first time using a compressor. I have not been out on these tires yet but I expect they will feel great as is usually my experience with Vittoria tires. I would have to say, avoid these tires if you are not experienced mounting tight fitting clinchers, have delicate hands or get easily frustrated.

Excellent Tires

I have these mounted to Enve 4.5 AR's and have about 700 miles on them. I love them!

I ride over roads in varying conditions and they are responsive and durable. I have not had a flat yet.

These are nearly impossible to mount, as another reviewer noted, and I went through 3 tire levers before calling it quits and bringing them to my local shop for mounting. Once mounted however, they have been fantastic.

All said, I have purchased a 2nd set and will continue to use these as my main training tire.

Vittoria Rubino is made to roll with outstanding durability that makes it the best all round tire out there

I have used this tire on fast rolling tarmac, mixed surfaced roads and gravel. Easy to install ,holds air, and rolls fast enough to race on

leaking sidewalls

I was losing 60 psi overnight with these tires. Thought I had installed the valve incorrectly but it was fine. Realized that sealant was coming through the sidewalls everywhere there was lettering on the tire. Installed a second tire and it did the same thing. Tried laying them on their side overnight didn't help. Pretty useless as tubeless tires.

Dissapointing

My wife has ridden Vittoria Rubino Pro tires for the past three seasons. Always has been a good tire for her. Good flat resistance, rolls nice and is comfortable between 100 and 110 psi. Time to replace so I bought this version ... tubeless ready ... okay, I have used tubless ready on our touring bikes with tubes, no problem.

Pulled the foldables out of the box and double checked the width ... yep, 25's but they sure looked narrow. Nonetheless, I mountend them up with the same tubes we always use. Wow, I have always chuckled at reviews that talk about how difficult some clinchers are to mount. I rarely use tools, I have mounted enough to know how to work the bead and get it to finally set up. Some are faster than others, but, I cannot recall ever not getting a tire on the rim.

While my winning streak continues (I did get mounted) I must say, this tire was the most challenging tire I have ever mounted. I suspect it is a tighter fit beacaue of the tubeless ready version and what I believe is poor quality control (no way these tire measure 25's). Nontheless, my wife saw me struggle and immediately put an end to this tire on her bike. She realized that she would never be able to change a flat should she ever need to. I agreed and removed the tire. Three tire tools, a fair amount profanity and a promise I would never buy this tire again ... finally, I had the tire off the rim and back in the box. The two foldables are packaged and are awaiting their journey back to BTD.

I did order two other Rubino Pro's (from BTD ... they are a great) as replacements and made certain they were not tubeless ready. If those prove disappointing too I will begin lobbying my spouse to move on to my preferred brand of tires.

good all round tire

I use these tires for my regular training ride 27miles & 2000ft elevation. It is on mixed citycountry roads. Country roads are pretty beat up and broken glass is common in the city. Part of my ride I reach 35 mph and the road is so bumpy it is like skiing moguls.

That said, I love these tires. First, they grip very well. I lay them over in a corner without any worry. They also do pretty well in the rain. They are a tough tire and resist flatting. Roll resistance is about average. Comfort varies from biketire sizeair pressure. I ride 28c 70lbs and I like how they feel. I think this tire is a good all round training recreational commuter tire.

Don't bother if you have a larger rim

I spent over an hour attempting to mount ONE tire. I understand my rims (Pacenti SL23's), as some others, can be difficult to mount tires onto. But, come on! I did everything I could including using a 60-gallon 100 psi compressor, zip ties, packing tape and a tie-down strap (Yes, you read the last two correctly) only to eventually realize that I was spinning my wheels (See what I did there).

When I did manage to get the tire on, the bead sat VERY tightly in the center of the rim where the circumference is smaller than the rest of the rim bed. Given that the tire still had to come to rest against the inner brake wall just under the hook, It finally dawned on me that there was no way in hell that the tire was going to stretch that far so I gave up.

I've used about 8 tubeless tires from different manufactures and even though I've had a very hard time mounting some of those tires, everything eventually worked out. If you have a wheel that has a rim that is on the larger size, do yourself a favor and don't waste your money like I did with mine.
