Picked up Campagnolo Bora One 35s, what tire should I use?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Picked up Campagnolo Bora One 35s, what tire should I use?

As the title says. I just upgraded to the Campagnolo Bora One 35s from my hand built Pacenti v1s and would like to get new rubber for them. Reading horror stories about the Conti 4000's side wall's splitting...what's a good tire these days with decent puncture resistance that doesnt weigh a ton? Not for racing, long commute or weekend rides on fairly decent tarmac.

Conti 4000!
Don't believe everything you read on the internet.
No doubt people have had sidewall issues but I am sure there are many happy users of them out there too.

I’ve ridden the 4000’s down to the bone and never had a sidewall split. Several different pairs and 40k(easy) with not one sidewall issue. Knock knock

Prettu sure they’re pretty widely regarded as the best road clincher.

I'd say keep it Italian and go with Vittoria Corsa Controls.

Or the Rubino Pro G+.

Either are going to be an extremely supple, fast rolling tire.

The rubino rolling resistance and puncture resistance seems average though

Another GP4000 fan. Thousands of miles with no sidewalk issues. Maybe not the fastest clinchers but they are tough, comfortable and fast enough.
