I know it’s hard to tell but I just installed new tires on one of my bikes. I decided that since the frame can accommodate them to go ahead and throw some 32c width tires on my randdoneuring/commuter frame. Since gravel tends to be in my commuting area I figured this wider tire would afford me a little better protection against punctures and bent rims. Nashbar had some Panaracer Paselas on sale for $15 a piece which is an excellent price for a tire. I haven’t ridden them yet but they are replacing some Panaracer Ruffy Tuffys which have been excellent and came as a recommendation from my buddy Jason who has them on his fixed gear. I liked the Ruffy Tuffys so much that I’m pretty much set on Panaracer tires now ( the ruffys are going on my road frame to replace some mismatched Schwalbe/ Vittoria setup). They’re lighter than the other puncture resistant tires I had (Vittoria Ranndoneurs) and grip amazingly. The checkerboard tread looks great too. I hope these paselas work just as well and if your looking for a a set of rubber, I highly recommend Panaracer. The old school brown sidewalls can’t be beat either and for $15 at nashbar you can get paselas in 28c, 32c, or 35c widths right now.
