    Hutchinson tires. I just bought the UrbanTour+ that is puncture proof. 700x32 is my size. It has very stiff sidewalls and has a max inflation of 94psi. Compared to my Kenda Kwick they have far less tire squat and roll very nice. I was sold a set of Serfas Touno tires last weekend and it fealt like I was riding on flat tires they squatted so much and I had four flats in five days- just too thin and flimsy of a tire.

    A 32c tire will not fit many road bikes. The largest I could get on a few frames was 28c. Now I ride a frame where anything larger than a 25c will be a tight fit.

    A 25c tire inflated to the maximum pressure should support all but the heaviest of riders. A larger tire can do so with a bit less pressure for more riding comfort.

    I think you can get them in those sizes too.
