I'd like to join the SMP lovefest.
Been using SMP 38s for about 3 years now on the mean streets of San Diego, Cali. Zero flats.
They are a little heavy so a little slowish, but roll just fine.
But if your number 1 priority is reliability (absolutely, positively, yes please) then they are the tire for you.

Reliability is definitely my number one priority for commuting. Ride quality is in the mix, too, but Iím willing to make some trade offs there.
