I put a set of Kenda Kwests on my 3 speed commuter bike. So far, they have performed admirably, especially for tires that cost less than $15 each. I have the bigger 700x35 tires, and they roll surprisingly fast. I've already hit a fair amount of glass, and they've held up well. In my case, the true test will come this summer when we start getting sand burr thorns.
