Vittoria Rubino Pro III sits right at the sweet spot for high mileage non-competitive riders. They are an excellent balance of light weight, low rolling resistance, flat protection, long tread life, good traction, and low cost when bought on sale. Also, they are one of the few performancedurability tires available in 28mm, which IMO perfectly balances efficiency and comfort for long rides on sometimes rough country roads.
Unlike some other tires, the Rubinos can be mountedremoved without tools, at least on the Easton & Boyd wheels I use - a characteristic that is seriously appreciated during rare flat & tire replacement times. I get about 2000 miles per rear tire, and at least 4000 for each front. Maybe 6000. I replace when the first bit of belt peeks through.
It may help to know my profile. I ride a custom steel bike that was built to take up to 28mm tires because quiet country roads around here are rough. 3000 - 4000 miles per year. Ride several mountainous century events each year. Rolling roads with some major climbs. All weather conditions.
