This isn't your usual wire bead vs folding question, I realise whenever anyone asks folding always comes out better.
I've just renewed the rear tyre on my Specialized Tarmac from the factory S Works 700x24C for Gatorskin 700x25C (wire bead as it's all the shop had) and it's like putting Nike Air shoes on my bike.
I live in Cornwall, UK it's quite rural and the roads can be bad, and the good roads the council likes putting stone chippings down which destroys the surface, changing to the Gatorskin as make the road so much smoother.
I now want to replace the front as well which isn't so urgent, if I invest in a folding will the ride be more/less smooth or the same?
Many thanks and stay safe.
