Which tires

If you had a choice between

continental GP5000

continental Attack/Force 3

continental Grand Prix TT

To put on your kids bike, which would you choose

Looking for something lightweight and fast but not easily punctured Purely his racing tires to go on a set of Rolf elan stealth wheels

GP5000, the 4000 IIs were nice and the 5000 have been nicer. Unfortunately they don't make them in a 650c or 26" so my kid is stuck on some nicer michelin but not as nice as I'd like. They get good reviews, I have them on my wife's and my bike and of the three listed I believe they are the fastest all around tire. Either that or I'd do a pair of Challenge. Really wish there were nicer tires in smaller Jr. sized wheels.

GP5000. Do narrow.
The puncture thing is a non-issue for racing.
Might do light tubulars. It is unlikely there will be a flat. That choice is kinda dependent on how into it you all are.
