I've been using the same tire for commuting/city road riding/trail riding for 21 years (Cheng Shin Top Gear Road Hog) but they were discontinued around '93 (bought 20 pairs when they were discontinued). Now I am seriously looking into something like WTB All Terrainasaurus; I think that the fit my bill (but they come on 32 and 37, which could be a problem if you are running skinnier rims)
