I always say you should buy your tire for the conditions you ride the most. So if that is pavement, then slick to virtually no tread.

If you aren't in deep loose sand or mud or soft earth, then knobs are not going to do much for you otherwise. At least not enough to be more benefit on the few times you ride off road, compared to the disadvantage of energy they'll cost you on pavement..... I'd think. But I don't ride anything but pavement. So I'll admit I could be all wrong.
