Tires might be an afterthought to most but they have a major impact on your bike's ride quality and efficiency. Tires can be designed for different functions. Some tires are built for long distance and puncture protection, and some tires are built for racing. The Continental Grand Prix 5000 Road Tire is one of the best allrounder tires which allows riders to ride faster, and the tire is more comfortable and with increased puncture protection. It features BlackChili which is a tread compound that balances grip and rolling resistance. Vectran is the puncture protection inside the tire that is more flexible and protects more effectively. The TL version of the Grand Prix 5000 is tubeless ready, which means once set up tubeless, you can run your tires with lower tire pressures for a smoother ride and fewer puncture flats thanks to the tubeless sealant.

I've never been a big fan of Conti tires but these tires are about the best road tubeless tires I've tried.
I've been riding tubeless road since 2012 starting with the Hutchinson Fusion 3, then the 4, then moving to the Schwalbe Pro Ones (fast/comfortable) followed by the Maxxis Padrones (durable).
The 5000s are the best of the Schwalbes when it comes to speed and comfort with the durability of the Padrones.
They are a very fast and smooth rolling tire with about the longest lasting tread I've seen yet for a "race" tire.
The bad of this tire is that it is also the tightest fitting tire I've used so be prepared for a little bit of a wrestling match to get them mounted. Once mounted though, they seal up easy with a floor pump.
