I've been riding an ancient set of Conti Ultra Races and get flats every 100 miles or so. What do you guys think of the Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick Road Tire?

The Contis were 25mm and I'm thinking of getting the 23mm. I'm reading the previous discussion on the subject but would appreciate any feedback on the matter.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I have an Audax bike which came with 25mm Rubinos. No complaints here. The tyres got worn out in the end and I can't actually remember ever getting a flat on them. Replaced them with Corsas, just because I could. – PeteH Jul 27 '13 at 7:31

I've run Rubino Pros for a few years. They aren't the lightest or fastest tire around, but they last very well and are pretty flat proof for my area (Seattle).
