Conti Ultra 3000 tires(1 post)

Conti Ultra 3000 tiresChas
Jul 7, 2001 8:56 PM
I've got 850 miles on a set of continental ultra 3000 and I seem to be slicing and dicing them up pretty good. Three flats so far, two resulted in slices all the way through the tire. I've put patches on the inside of the tire under the slices and it appears to be working alright. I also have some thread showing on the sidewall of the front tire.
Do I need new tires already? and Whats the diffrence between the ultra 3000 and the ultra 2000?
Doing my first century this Saturday, "One Helluva Ride" out of Chelsea Michigan hosted by the AABTS.
I'm thinking new tires might be a good idea.
