Looking for tire suggestions

What are your favorite road/street tire in a 35-40mm width for 16" (349, not 305 diameter) and 20" (451, not 406 diameter) sizes?

Full disclosure: These are for my recumbent trike, not a folding bike, but I don't think that's relevant.

It depends, do you want speed then go True Blue or Scorcher they 349-40 race tires. Know they are supple, comfortable but flat easy.

Alternately, go for Contact Urban 349-35, they ride pretty nice and have good flat resistance.

I didn't know the contact Urban's came in that size. I thought I had looked on the website and couldn't find them. But I found some and ordered them.

Hopefully they make the same tire in 451!
