SchwalbeTour Plus Tire Review - Intro
These tires are very similar to Schwalbe Landcruiser tires and at around half the price you should probably buy the land cruisers. However, being a bit of a tart I went for these chunkier tires, which appear to have a deeper tread, and be generally more knobbly.
They have a solid centre tread that offers low rolling resistance on paved surfaces, and then knobbly bits for mud and such on the edges.
Schwalbe Tour Plus Tire Review - Puncture Protection
On most schwalbe tires "plus" means the the tire has a puncture protection band of some sort, which would be around 3mm or 5mm of green gaurd latex or 5mm of there smart gaurd.
These Tour Plus tires have the standard have the standard natural rubber protection belt, which I have found to be very effective on these and other tires. Having said that I am not sure why the word plus is on these tires.

Nice and quiet and roll really nicely. The 2" ones just fit in side my mudguards, they also come in 1.75".

Schwalbe Tour Plus Tire Review - Conclusion
The lack of kevlar guard which would be available on a tire of this price else where in the schwalbe range, is of little concern. These are very puncture resistant tires.
However, why spend £20 on a Tour Plus when £12 on a Land Cruiser will do the same job? Maybe because they look a bit cooler. . . . . . .
