    Panaracer road tires

    Anybody have any experience or feedback on Panaracer road tires? I'm intrigued by them and planning to give them a try, not sure if I'm going to get "A" or "D" type Evo's.

    A seems to be the main all around tire.
    D offers more puncture protection.
    C or L is the lightweight offering.

    Based on local roads (too much debris and thorns) the C's are out.

    Coming from years of Specialized Turbo Pro on the main road bike and GP4000s on the wife's bike that I ride occasionally.

    I run them on my old MTB when I want a 26 inch road tire instead of MTB tire.

    I've always liked them. That said, it's been years since I rode on them.

    I've used them before, and they were always good tires; a good combination of quality and durability. The only problem is that they don't have many choices.

    Here's some rolling resistance testing on the A's. I'd probably go with the D's for a winter tire.

    I'm currently running a set of Panaracer "A" EVO3's and have nothing but good praises. IMO a great combination of quality and durability. I like so much I recently purchased a set of Panaracer "L" EVO3's for my newest bike build over the winter.

    Thanks, Folks. Based on reviews saying the A's actually have pretty substantial puncture protection already, I might try those before the D's.
