Marathon mondial hs 428

After getting the hang of the filters on the Schwalbe Tires North America web site, the MARATHON MONDIAL HS 428 looks like it might be the best fit for us. The 26 x 2.0 size weighs 740 g and rates 4 put of 6 for rolling and road grip, 3.5 for off-road grip, and 6 or 4 for protection (depending on model, Double Protection or RaceGuard). The Marathon Plus weighs 1100 g, and rates 3.5 rolling, 4 road grip, 2 off-road grip, 6 protection.

Is there any reason to prefer folding versus wire bead? We are not going to carry a spare tire, so that is not an issue for us. There is a 20 g weight difference (negligible to us), but a big price difference.
