Welcome aboard Susanne.
No no, don't PM when sharing discussion. That keeps the rest of us from learning.
I agree with the Avon Gripsters but just installed Avon Distanzia, front & rear, for the winter. Hopefully they will perform well on wet surfaces.
In May I plan on changing to a more agressive tire for a Utah trip where I plan on riding some off-road (I usually ride 99.5% road) to experience the Nevada mountains, dirt/gravel roads around the Great Salt Lake, and hopefully some Utah red dirt. I am considering the TKC80 though might go back to the Gripster since I won't be riding any wet off-road.
Have we discussed tire air pressure, no, and that is important as tire selection.
