It's about time to change the tires on my Cross Check. Most recent pair was Schwalbe Marathon Mondial (700x42? 45?). Previous pair was Marathon Supreme (700x50). The Supremes lasted about 8000mi before I put on the Mondials. Very disappointingly, the rear Mondial wore out I think less than 1000mi, so I put the better of the Supremes on the back and have gone probably another 1000mi that way so far.

But I'm thinking next I'll try out WTB ThickSlicks because they look cool and last long and don't cost too much, but I'm seeing no 700 widths available between 28 and 52. 52 would be cutting it really close on the 'check
