Whilst wet / dry grip, noise, wear rate, rolling resistance are fundamental factors in tyre selection, some seem to build in kerb protection (very limited admittedly but can help a little) and some don't.

My Goodyear F1As2 tyres have protectors - I've attached a photo - stand proud perhaps 1-2 mm - not going to stop much, but just might.

It seems like the 'new flavour of the month, the Goodyear Efficient Grip does not:

('Efficient Grip' photo pinched from another thread, but just to demonstrate point.)

Are 'protectors' a consideration in tyre selection?
I know, and agreed, if you're careful they shouldn't be necessary.
