My Experience

Before using Comtura 4 TR, I used Tufo Calibra Plus 25mm tires. I was satisfied with them because of their longevity and affordability.

Additionally, it’s a Czech product manufactured not far from where I live. So, I decided also to try the Comturas.

I use different wheelsets, so the distance ridden is spread among multiple tires. However, I have ridden about 1500 km (930 miles) with one set, and I still don’t see significant tire wear. See the pictures below:

The main disadvantage of these tires is their difficulty putting them on rims. It’s a much tougher job than with tires like Continental GrandPrix 5000 S TR. I recommend following official instructions that make the job easier.

However, their durability is excellent. I ride on the local bicycle paths, where youngsters often break a glass of beer or wine and forget to sweep it the next day.

I rode through the shards multiple times and never got a puncture (yet). Sometimes, I ride on gravel or paved forest roads with a lot of dirt, rocks, and logging clutter—no puncture yet (knock on wood).

My friend used Vittoria Corsa Speed G+ 2.0 (TLR), but they lasted about 1000 km before he got a puncture. Indeed, these are racing tires not suitable for training.

I recommended him the Comturas. Although he cursed a lot when putting them on, after a few hundred kilometers, he admitted they provide him with great grip and durability. I look forward to hearing more about his experience.

Tufo FAQ

Summary

Based on my experience and unscientific testing, Tufo Comtura 4 TR are puncture-resistant tires with good grip.

They are heavier than performance road bike tires and pretty hard to get on. But, they are more affordable than tires from established brands offering a better price-value ratio for weekend warriors.
