Anyway, in terms of great tires that won't give you much trouble these are my favorites:

http://bontrager.com/model/00443 <-- might not be a popular opinion but I ride on streets w/ a lot of glass and these so far have given me the least # of flats
http://www.rei.com/product/786321 <-- cheaper and I know a lot of people that like these
http://www.rei.com/product/671870 <-- IMO these aren't as good as the bontragers but I have been running them for a while without too many problems

Bottom line: you're going to start going through tires and you'll just have to figure out what works for YOU because there is no silver bullet when it comes to tires (as is the case with so many things in the bike world). You're always trading off weight for durability, etc.

Hope this helps.
