looking for some good "street" tires
Since I now have an extra set of rims (26" mtn bike rims), Im looking for a set of "pavement" tires for riding on my bike trail. Its pretty much all pavement, which the exception of some hard pack dirt spots. I bought the Giant Boulder SE that came with the aggressive mtn bike tires, but the one I test rode had street tires (had oval knobbies). I kinda like those tires, felt pretty good and looks like it would give me enough traction on some dirt but without slowing me down like aggressive tires do. Not looking for brands, but I would rather see pics of treads instead so I can match it with whatever my LBS has. I'm not sure if I want "slick" tires (as on road/comfort bikes, etc) because of the dirt spots and possibly light rain conditions.
I've asked this before, but my needs changed since I now have 2 sets of quick change rims (gutted the old mtn bike for parts). I'll use the stock giant aggressive for any off roading/camp sites/etc and use the street tires for puttn around the trails.
