Mix and Match any good

I was wondering if anyone had a good suggestion for two tires that i could put on my mtb that would ride well in the city. I won't have time to trail ride so i need something that isn't aggresive at all. i want not so much tread on the front and alittle on the front thanks

On the street, smooth is best. The higher the pressure the better.

Ask your local LBS. They'll know.

Conti Town and Country's are quite good. IRC makes some very good pavement tyres, too.

I think semi slicks are what you looking for, less rolling resistance and a few knobbies for the grip!

And like D`Alex said; IRC makes quit good semi slicks.
