Well after a spate of punctures on my commute bike I did consider the Tannus tyres.
Get good reviews etc. and at about 50 a tyre maybe a bit expensive. And fitting looks to be OK but you need to measure the inner size of rim and not just read size on wheel e.g. my wheels say 18 mm but actual size is 17.5 mm and apparently that makes a difference?
So all looks good? well no, I went off them because if you break a spoke then removing the tyre renders it useless so went and bought some schwalbe marathon plus instead.
