I'm looking for a set of clinchers for my new set of HED Jets. Besides the always popular and proven Michelin Pro Race 2 and 3's, the Continental GP4000 and Attack/Force combo and the Vittoria's range, what other alternatives to these do you recommend? I've had the Mich, Conti, Vitt and Vredstrein Fortezza Tri-Comp at various times during the past few years and like them all. I could simply get the tires I know. But recently, I found a set of Hutchinson Fusion 2 Ultra for an unbeatable price at the LBS. I've never used Hutchinsons. What's the word on the Fusion 2 Ultras? Are they as good as the Pro Race 2/3 and GP4000 overall for grip, wear, puncture resistance, etc.? My riding consists of about 250km/week over rolling terrain. The Hutch specs look good but opinions from those who have actually used Hutchinson Fusions would be appreciated.
