    Any opinion on these tires?

    If not what do you use for the trails.

    Thanks.

    As long as they are on your bike , not your car, I would like your opinion on their quality.

    No problem, We have a hard limestone base here , very dry for the most part.
    I also ride some sandy lome in East Texas.
    No racing or D/H just general riding, non-competitive.

    I also ride a paved trail every now and then can you recommend a Michelin or Conti tire?

    Michelin are good but expensive. I don't know much about their tires, except for their DH and FR tires.

    From things about these two types of styles, if you're doing a reasonable amount of riding on roads or pavement when getting to the trail, they will wear out quick. They are pretty soft compound.

    But I don't know about their XC lines so they may be good. But Michelin do usually make good tires.

    Michelin tires are sweet. I've never had a better set of tires for my 83' pinto in my life. If you can get a set of those car tires you'll never regret it. Its the opportunity of a lifetime.

    Seriously though, what the hell are you looking for. Maby you should go check out what both have to offer before you ask a question that you already know the answer you want to hear.

    I was just wanting some feedback on these tires.

    I should have phrased it better.
