I need new tires for an '94 Aspencade. I commute on this bike and get caught in the rain quite often, so I'd like to get the best rain tire possible. Any experience with Elite IIIs? ...Michelin's?

Good tyre, but searching the forum reveals that the most popular one seems to be the Metzeler 880. BTW welcome to the forum. :D

Mixed reports on the Elite IIIs from my reading, although its still early days and they are not available in large quantities every where yet. It does seem like the EIII isn't the magic tyre that we were led to believe in all the bumpf.
BTW, Michelin don't recommend any of theirtyres for the GL1500, to the best of my knowledge (unless they brought a new one out recently).

Tyres are like oil, as Redwing said. It's really a case of listening to what you hear, then going out and buying the tyre you were thinking about in the first place!

Thanks for the welcome and the response.

Now that the snow is gone, I'll probably buy whatever is on the shelf so I can geton the road as soon as possible.
