|Vredestein Fortezza Road vs Michelin Axial Pro||Noam|

|Time to buy a new pair, I had both and liked both. Michelin feels hard and available in 20 section. Fortezza comes in 23 section only. I prefer the 20 section. Like it slim. please advise on technical merits only disregarding the price.
|Neither. Veloflex Tires are better than both (NM)!||davidxy|

|vredestein fortezza come in 20c as well. How can you say that it doesn't when 20c fortezza is literally plastered all over every tire-selling website.
Woof the dog.

|Parker Intl. says not avaiable in 20c. It could be a decision made by the UK distributor.|

|I share your feelings about the Michelins. I have not had great experiences with the Vredesteins, mainly because the were simply not round (although, in all fairness, they were Tricomps). There was always a bump somewhere and that translated into a small but noticeable "thump" on every tire I tried. Upon calling Vredestein, I learned that that was due to them being handmade. Hmmmmmmmm.
Vittorias have worked well, Veloflex Paves are outstanding (albeit not as durable) and Continental 4 seasons (if you don't mind the occasional piece of thread coming off the side wall), do the job as well.
|Many miles on both, prefer Michelin Pro Race (nm)||Al1943|
