What tyres are you using ?
I need to change a tyre , I’m currently running Michelin classics as I want something period looking , but I find them expensive and prone to cracking on the tyre wall .

Any recommendations?

Michelin Classics??
Not heard of those. For a standard tyre,I've been fitting the Michelin S83.
I have had no problems in any condition with them,and are always reasonably priced at around the £25 - £30 tag.
Also available are the Pirelli SC28,but I have found them a bit 'square' on their profile.
As a 'sporty' tyre I've always used the Michelin S1,although recently I've found out that their speed rating has dropped,so for my latest machine,I've opted for the Shwalbe 'Raceman'.
