So what made you change to Marathon greenguard, from your Marathon Supreme?

I've currently got marathon supreme on my tourer/commuter (as a replacement for 32mm marathon greenguard which I found rather harsh).

Basically, because I had 3 visits in my Supremes , in a short space of time, ( none in the similar Spicers ) and because I found them a tad slippy on the wet skoggy roads, and on wet rough stuff.

Interesting. I'm happy with the Marathon Supreme on my Dawes Horizon at the moment, but I suspect come autumn time I'll switch back to marathon greenguard as some tread is useful for skoggy roads etc. What mileage did you get from the marathon supreme?

If you scroll down the reviews section, I have similar reviews on Supreme and Spicer tyres. I took the supremes off, and still have them.
