I've had good luck with Stehers. They're very durable, and nice enough to still want to ride them. Since I race outdoors, I use those.

edit: just saw your upthread frustration with Stehers, though. Huh.
Since I race both indoors and outdoors, I have used Stehers for years. However, since I bought a pair of wheels with Vittorias, I am changing over to them for my race wheels since they ride sooooo much nicer; plus I can ride a 45 degree bank about 2 mph slower with the Vittorias than the Stehers (this is not that surprising given the relative stiffness of the sidewalls and apparent (to my fingernail) hardness of the tread). I am just hoping that Rock Hill does not chew up the Vittorias too fast.
