Anybody who has used Torelli (TDF ?) tires before ?PeterRider

I just found at school, free to take, a box with a few Torelli tires that look brand new. Don't know if they are recent, but they are definitely new. Model seems to be TDF (don't see anything on the box, only "special european" and "high adhesion thread compound"), 700x23c.

Anybody has used those tires before ? What other tires would they compare to ? If they are reasonably good I'm going to be happy, there are 4 or 5 of them.

Check out Torelli products here:

The tires you mention are here:

Never tried them myself but I get the impression they are an ok product. The tire is called a "Tour de France" and lists for about $30 US. I think they are the bottom of the Torelli line, though.
They're decent, at least.jw25

I believe they're made by Hutchinson, and, if you believe the writeup on Torelli's site, are nice.
But hey, they're free, right? I'd definitely take a few and give them a try.
