I've never liked tires like the Schwalbe Hurricanes or Conti Travel Contacts with a smooth center and knobs on the side. The knobs give less traction when you need it the most in cornering on pavement, and don't really provide much additional traction on dirt. A round profile slick like the Schwalbe Big Apple or Conti Sport Contact is a much better all-around tire for commuting on dirt and pavement.
