/ puncture proof tyres
For a mountain bike, but would like to put road tyres on, if they are as puncture proof as knobblys.
For a daily commute, so weight and cost not an issue.
I need the ultimate puncture free solution.
If it's for a mountain bike, had you thought of going tubeless and using a set of these?
your best way to avoid punctures is to go tubeless but that won't get around the roge thorn of glass in the tyre.
I would specifically recommend the Schwalbe Marathon Plus. Done maybe 10,000 kms on mine with no punctures. What more can you ask for?
Another vote for the Schwalbe Marathons. I think mine are the "racer plus"

And another. 1 year, no punctures.
1 puncture in 18 months
Me too, superb tyre.
Yes, gatorskins are great, if you can get them to fit a mountain bike. I've had mine about 3 years and no punctures, despite regular London commuting.
