If you mean like an urban/dj tire, look at the Maxxis Holy Roller or the Kenda K-rad.

I second that.

My Mongoose ALD is wearing a pair right now and soon my Iron Horse will have one as well. They dig into lose stuff very well and don't put up much resistance on hard pavement. I took them through Boston about a month ago and they rolled great.
