Tyre recommendation needed please

Posted By: Neil Vaughan
Date: 7 August 2008

We have ridden 26x1.5 Panaracer Hi Roads for 10 years without any trouble other than punctures. Now in 1 week having fitted 2 new hi roads, both front and rear have blown off the rims. Inflation pressure was 90psi. On refitting the first tyre, it then started to bulge off the rim whilst inflating. Consequently I scrapped the tyre. Both tyres were extremely easy to fit on the rim, which leads me to suspect this was an ovesize batch.
I have now lost confidence in this make of tyre and would like something equally light and sporting as we ride with a group, some of whom do not take prisoners.
Suggestions would be well received with the exception of "marathons" as I've already felt the weight of them.
