£34.99

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/vittoria-pave-c ... road-tyre/

£62.81

what's the difference, apart from the price of course and the green stripe in the middle.

The Wiggle ones are the older model too! They should both measure at 27mm width I think, the Open ones (clinchers) can be bought in 24 or 27, so check width for the Wiggle ones as I couldn't see where it was specified.

They are awesome tyres, fantastic in bad weather, and ride like a well sprung sofa. I use the open 24s extensively for training and commuting. They aren't cheap though, but I reckon they're worth it.

I reckon £34.99 is a good deal........I've just bought 6 of the 27mm tubular ones from planet X.

Glad you like them, at that price I do too.
