My question is, are there any 30s that will give me any advantage over the more common 28s? I'll be on pavement 95%, but it might be rough pavement, and some pretty smooth gravel/dirt trails when they're dry.

Thanks in advance.
A much bigger factor is one tire model compared to another tire model. A 2c difference is relatively minor compared to what one model tire at some pressure can offer over some other model. There may be a 30c tire (are there 30c tires?) that may feel like a frozen garden hose compared to a different model 28c.
