What is the best tire for training?beeman

I am looking for some input about tires used for training/recreational purposes. Idealy, I am looking for a well built tire that is going to last longer than the panaracers I have (only lasted 300 miles) Thanks.
I use the cheap Michelin Bi-AxialBenji

I use the cheap Michelin Bi-Axial for training. Done 3000 Km on them still the caracters on the tread (they're not slick) EXISTS. Happy cycling!!

Just did the Cal AIDS ride on them - no flats. The Michelins are good, but I found their rolling resistance to be slightly higher than the Paselas.

Dang! I bought some a few weeks ago for $25. I wonder if I can find my receipt . . . .

So far, so good on the tires, but really too soon to tell.

I just turned 1,000 miles on my current pair of Forte Kevlars. They are great, great tires. Will never go back to those damn Continental flat-makers.

I want to echo the recomendations of Performance's Forte Kevlars. More supple than my previous Conti's (tho admittedly not 3000's) or Specialized. I ride 700x26's due to large amount of tar and gravel chip roads out here at about 95-100psi. Not one problem.
