Planning on riding north to Norway. What are the best road tires for my loaded trek 520 ?
My vote for the best tires; Schwalbe Marathon Supreme.
Lightweight, reflective strip on the sidewall, foldable, great traction in rain and puncture resistant.
Bikers get very passionate about their tires. The worst that I've used as far as failure and flats are Specialized, so I wouldn't recommend anything from them. I currently use Continental Travel Contacts (folding) for loaded touring, and Continental Gator Skins for light touring. The Travel Contacts are lighter than Schwalbe Marathons, have low resistance, and I haven't had any issues with them. Many tourists swear by Marathons. You can't go wrong with either.
