Continental's Town and Country tire is designed for high mileage, puncture resistance, and low rolling resistance, making it great for every day use. It''s a staple in law enforcement around the world and right here in Ypsilanti at some of the local police departments we service. The recessed tread pattern adds a little extra grip on looser ground while its consistent center bead adds to its speed. The 26 x 2.1" shown here adds just a little stability over its 1.9" brother with its wider body. When it comes to a go anywhere, do anything tire the Continental Town and Country has got it pegged.

I just started using these tires for my daily commute and I love them. I read plenty of reviews online before and I purchased them and the only thing that concerned me was a lack of puncture resistance. I had Slime tire strips in my old tires so I transfered them and I have had no problems. Most of the city tires I have seen look out of place on a mountain bike, but these are 2.1's and look "right" on my bike. I give these tires "two thumbs up".

I bought these since my DB hard tail has become an evening neighborhood cruiser. Tires seem to be exactly what I need for just general street riding. Price was great at $20 ea. as for durability, I'll likely change them due to age since I'm slowing down some and don't ride as much.
Al in NC.
I've been riding Continental Town and Country tires for more years than I can remember. They were awesome for around town commuting. And I've ridden at least one century on them. They perform well for most trail and fire road rides. Now I can't imagine riding much else unless it is wet leaves, gnarly single track or muddy conditions.

I blew out the sidewall on this tire within the first day of riding it and I wasn't even trying. The sidewalls are way too thin for such a large volume tire so the tire tends to fold and squirm around corners.
I wish I knew what it would do in other conditions but it didn't last long enough
Summed up: I wouldn't recommend this tire to anyone. It is a garbage tire that made me question my favorite tire manufacturer, Continen

I'd read several recommendations of these for snow riding. I bought them for my year-round commuter (a Swobo Dixon) and ran them during what turned out to be the snowiest two months New England had seen in about 15 years. I rolled on them daily through 1/2 inch to 4-inch depths of icy, plowed-over, packed down, washboarded-out road crap of every description.
My conclusion: the T&Cs simply aren't up to the task of pulling through serious accumulation of the type that you're liable to find on a winter commute in the North American temperate zones. The inverted tread on the edges might save you in a slide, but the real deal-breaker is the lack of texture in the center tread. I routinely would lose traction on my back tire when standing up and had to corner with extreme caution if I was on anything but clear surface.
These sure are snazzy-looking, and would serve well for a three-season commuter tire with just a touch of extra traction-assurance without too much extra rolling resistance. However, for more than the lightest snow-commuting you're going to need something a bit knobbier.
