Continental Grand Prix 4 Season Tire - Clincher
The Continental GP 4-Season Tire takes the overall grippiness and performance inherent to the G.P. 4000 and adds extra sidewall durability to increase the punture protection. DuraSkin is Continental's patented nylon mesh layer that significantly beefs up the sidewall for flat resistance without compromising a supple ride quality or adding significant weight.
Continental offers the GP 4-Season Tire in three sizes -- 700x23, 700x25, and 700x28mm. It has a Grey tread with Duraskin sidewalls.

You cannot go wrong with the 4 season tire. If you will be riding in winter and in wet conditions these are awesome and will go forever 3,500-4,000 miles. If you never ride in the elements but ride lots and lots of miles then I would recommend getting the Continental Gator Hard Skins.

My brother uses these tires and he loves them. This is the Gods truth, these tires last so many miles he replaced his wheelset before replacing the tires. An amazing 330tpi avoids even the worst punctures. The sidewall is bulletproof and the rubber is long lasting. Great for year round use or training.
The kevlar beaded version weighs at:
220 grams - 23mm, 250 grams - 25mm, 270 grams - 28mm
The wire bead you see here is an additional 50grams a tire.

Are these good tires for that?

Better than most road tires. They have a tread that works well in wet conditions. As long as it is not a very long distance they should work well.

I slapped these in the 28's on my commuter bike to replace the 32C touring tires it came with. It made the bike noticeably more snappy and stiff. Which I like. They don'e roll over train tracks and the like quite as smoothly, but that's expected. I've got a couple hundred miles on them so far and no troubles. Good considering the construction zones, potholes, gutter junk, glass, and my fat butt all putting a strain on them. They stop fine and hold corners well. Not cheap so the better last a couple seasons at least. I might go back to the beefier tire for winter time when the roads are more unpredictable, but I think these will fit the bill the rest of the time.
I've ridden these tires nearly every day to work since May. Not a flat yet. No significant signs of wear. Great grip in the wet. Set the PSI and forget it. Upgrading to a full 5 stars.

After only about 1K miles the top rubber layer begin to peel off, showing the inner layer. On about 2K miles the damage appears on the inner surface causing the tube to explode.
