I’m considering whether to buy winter tires for my roadbike or just stick with the regular ones I have. About three months (or roughly 2000km) ago I put new Continental GP 5000 tires in 25mm onto my bike. So far no problems at all with punctures or grip on wet roads.
However, with cold weather coming, I’m thinking about getting dedicated winter tires such as the Continental 4 Seasons or the Specialized Roubaix Pro in 28mm.
I’m not sure though, if that even makes sense, considering that I’ll only ride down to 0 celsius (32F). I would appreciate if you could share your experiences and especially knowledge regarding whether to get the dedicated winter tires or just stick with the (impressive) Conti GP 5000.
Thank you very much!
