Widest 700c tire
#1
Can anyone please help me with finding a wide 700c tire? I am looking for something I can use on a hybrid bike that %99 of the time is on the street pavement. I have been looking but cannot seem to find much in a wide tire in this wheel size .. Thank You all Again for your help , Don J.

I have to drop the pressure on really rough mountain bike trails though. There are some places on our rails-to-trails bike trail where some low class morons like to throw glass bottles, and they are sometimes impossible to avoid.
