Subject: Best tires for my Kestrel???
My first race of the season is June 22nd and I may or may not be able to afford a bike checkup/tune up beforehand. That being said, today when I got off the trainer I saw that the wall behind my bike is sprayed with rubber pieces - like sawdust only rubber! This makes me a little nervous about racing on these tires (which came on the bike when my fiancé bought it for me in November last fall) I would like to put some fast but durable rubber on her before our maiden voyage. BTW, the stock wheels are Oval 530's, if that helps...?

Help!!!

Continental 4000s tires are what you are looking for.

So long as black is your favorite color I think the 4000 comes in different colors, but it's a considerably worse tire than the 4000s.

Bontrager tires and Michelin's come in different colors I believe. Pro Race 4's (Michelin) and R...something (Bonty) are the tires that immediately come to mind as having different color choices (and not sucking)

I looked on Amazon - yes, the 4000 Grand Prix come in colors. No biggie, I want good tires, not pretty tires!

Thank you!!!!

Just make sure you order the GP4000S, that S is important... the compound is different between that and the standard GP4000.... and I do believe you have a choice of any color you want, as long as it's black
