Found 11th Apr
Hi All,

I found this deal today while browsing for new tyres for my commuter bike. Reduced price applies only to the 700 x 32c variant of this tyre.

Product description:
The Protek Max city tyre is designed for commuter use in & around the city. Easy rolling, great grip and some of the key features of this tyre. Also the tyre uses a 5mm puncture protection belt helping to reduce punctures during the commute to/from work.


Top Features:
  • The continuous design at the centre and the high level of grooving on the shoulders gives excellent grip on wet and greasy surfaces
  • For maximum protection, Michelin offer MAX technology (5mm of essential reinforcement against punctures)
  • The tread pattern makes for easier rolling
  • The rubber compound gives excellent grip


Enjoy!

Looks like a good deal, perfect for City / Commuting and they're 32's..... I've never used these, being more of a Durano fan...but they're a whole lot more money.... !

I haven't used these before as well.
I don't believe you can go wrong with them; well known tyre brand, good features (at least on paper) and very well priced
From Google these are the prices elsewhere.... not sure which of these has stock though !

Where does the "reflective" come into it? No mention of it in the description from what I can see?

Needing something thinner than 32 for a mini triathlon I've got coming up in June, wondering how thin I could go with the tyres on this bike… giant-bicycles.com/us/…017

From my understanding and based on what I heard from my fellow bike gurus:
A general guideline is that the tire width should be between 1.45 and 2.0 times the inner rim width.
i.e. Rim with 17mm internal width should accept from 25c to 34c / 35c tyres
Any good on cars?

Thanks for replying, do you know how I'd find out that inner rim width? I know the wheel size is 700C

Lookup specs of your bike wheels or take the tyre off and measure it yourself.

25 or 28 should be good, there is a trend now for wider tyres, slightly more comfortable, less rolling resistance, more contact with the road. Speed wise, there isn't much in it. If you're a general cyclist, your fitness is the biggest contributor, plus wt of bike... I ride 25's...and am a half decent club rider.... most of the other guys I ride with use 25's but some have 28's too.... Good luck.
As a general rule of thumb... most rims.... will take 25's or 28's...but as Deltoid84 suggests a bit of measuring....perhaps best to be on the safe side....

Whereabouts on the Michelin site? This says otherwise:
bike.michelin.com/en/…max

"Thanks to the new generation of 5mm reinforcement offering effective anti-puncture protection."
Should be a good alternative to (similarly reflective) Schwalbe Marathon Plus, just go for whichever you can find cheapest in size you need. St John Street Cycles is another good source.
Hot deal; but just be aware that these are pretty hefty 740g per tyre in a 32c. What are they using for puncture protection - lead?

Definitely more suited to city commutes than anything speedy. I'd guess perfect for electric bikes.
