    Need a puncture resistant tire

    Hey all, looking for a decent puncture resistant tire in the 700x35 (or 32) range. My Schwalbe Marathon failed at the bead, I'm supposed to be getting a warranty replacement but it's been over a month and they aren't even replying to my emails anymore. For that reason I won't be buying a Schwalbe tire out of principle.

    I want a 700x35 that's very puncture resistant.

    Don't care about weight.

    32s would be okay, bigger than 35 might not work with my fenders.

    Reflective sidewalls are cool but not entirely necessary.

    Amazon Prime also cool since my LBS doesn't have anything like this in stock.

    My short list is currently Panaracer Tour Guard Plus and Continental Touring Plus. I think either should work but wanted to see if I'm missing anything else before I hit the buy button. Thanks all.

    I use the larger Conti Tour Rides (42mm) and like them quite a bit. I imagine there isn't much difference between the touring plus and the tour ride. Beware that Continental tires tend to have very tight beads when they're new.

    I was reading about the tight bead "issue" in the reviews. Slightly leaning towards the Panaracer because of that, I've been caught changing a flat when it was 40F and raining, not fun to fight a bead in those situations. The Conti also only comes in 32, no 35s.
