What brand tire to choose
Do folk have any opinion on which tires are the softer brands?
I'm in a really twisty area for my majority riding (and very wet for 3-6 months), so I'd rather go with a soft, grippy, compound. I've had so-called 'touring' tires before that were quite slippery in the rain, want to avoid those.
I'm thinking Pirelli, Michelen, Kenda, IRC in no particular order. I'm leaning toward the Kenda's at the moment.
The existing tires are 10 years old, so they gotta go. It's a good opportunity to re-spoke the wheels and do other maintenance while they are off.
Thanks -- lee
