...they're not overly pricey, either.
I would agree here as well, BUT...the Pasela casing is pretty darn thin at the tread, and extremely thin on the sidewall. I like them a lot and run them on most of my bikes, but with 170lbs on them I wear them out pretty fast, and the sidewalls have no abrasion resistance whatsoever, even on the PT models (where I suspect they save some of the weight).
