Specialized Nimbus 2 Sport Reflect tire

I got a flat on my fourth ride on my new Sirrus 6, so I decided to put armadillo tires on the bike. I have used them with my Giant Escape for a number of years. The LBS had the Specialized Nimbus 2 Sport Reflect tire in stock, so I went with that. I ride very early in the morning before the sun comes up, and the reflective aspect of the tire seems like such a great idea. I took a picture of the tire in the garage with the flash on, and you can see the reflective properties.

So how do you like these tires? I'm considering them for my Quick 1 and can't find much about them.

The tires have been great so far. Almost all of my rides are in the early morning before the sun comes up. The reflective nature of the tire is very helpful when cars are coming up your side. This is particularly true at stop signs. I have found that most cars turning right only slightly slow down for stop signs early in the morning. When the car lights hit the tires the cars almost always stop because they see the bike
