I was having way too many flats with my Michelins. I bought the Pro's on advice from my LBS. At first I felt really strange on these tires, boy were they heavy. However, I have not had one flat in two months - a record. I have gotten to like and appreciate these tires. Do any of you have experience with these?

they are great tires in terms of rolling resistance and the center of the tread is very thick, but the sidewalls are kind of thin. they lasted me 400 miles with almost no wear till a rock punched a hole in the sidewall on a 35mph descent. given the conditions i think any tire would have failed. overall a very good tire.
