Schwalbe Marathon Plus hs440 vs Schwable Tour Plus hs404???

I was thinking of using Schwalbe Marathon Plus hs440 26x1.75 as my Rear Tire and
Schwalbe Marathon Tour Plus hs404 26x1.75 as my Front Tire it will be like using
Semi-knobby Rear Tire and Knobby Front Tire for traction on dirt/Sandy Roads in Southern
California and what do you think about using Semi-Knobby Rear Tire and Knobby Front Tire
on a Touring Bike???

Traction: the grip of a tire on the road or a wheel on a trail.
and I also like to have good flat tire protection in Southern California and Arizona from
goatheads and glass on the road and I have seen broken glass on the road near CA CRV recycling centers in Southern California

Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tire hs440 26X1.75
995gm 45-70psi 47x559

Schwalbe Marathon Tour Plus hs404 26X1.75
980gm 45-70psi 47x559

and I have 2 set's of Schwalbe Marathon Tour Plus hs404 26X1.75 I never said I did not like Schwalbe Tires and right now I am trying Continental Touring Plus Tires 26X1.75 and right I don't have $55.00 for Schwalbe marathon plus hs440 tire 26x1.75
