No reason why you can't if that's what you prefer to ride. They are a little slower, but also a smoother ride. The longest I did on my hybridized MTB was a 52 mile gravel road ride about a month back. Would not have taken my road bike on something like that. It's not as snappy as my road bike, but is more comfortable. I'll probably use it on some t-shirt rides when I want to bring my big camera and I'm not concerned about keeping up with anyone.
In response to the tire thing, I have 26x1.5 Panaracer Paselas on it.
