Also, is there much difference between a 23 and a 25mm comfort wise? I know there'll be increased weight and rolling resistance, but on Sheffield roads that may well be worth it to avoid the feeling that you're riding a boneshaker.
If you're happy sacrificing a small amount of speed then 25mm will be more comfortable than 23mm for the same pressure on the same road surface.
I have these and they've done 1500 miles with no punctures and no obvious sign of wear so far. 25mm will be a little bit more comfortable.
I've just picked up some Schwalbe Durano Plus for the winter off ebay for about 20 quid a pop. They get good reviews so hopefully they will do the job.
The Vittoria Rubino's on my winter wheels have seen several thousand miles round the Lancashire lanes and have still got a fair bit of life in them. No punctures apart from the occasional pothole induced snakebite - they're also cheap as chips.
