Got these tires installed on my bike and seems like a quality tire. I ride mostly hardpack and streets which this tread patern will do great with.
If your a canal path/ urban/ street rider, I would recomend these tires.

I'm not nearly a pro with mtb, I bought one a few months ago after not riding since I was a kid. I did a lot of research to choose replacement parts for it that that were better than average. I landed on these tires since they seem to be unanimously praised. I've had them for a few weeks, and only put 200 miles or so on them before I got a flat. I understand that no rubber is going to be indestructible, but I am riding on pristinely paved streets and very short rides. I pulled a very small chunk of glass from the tire, and am now waiting on a patch kit and new innertubes. I just feel like for springing for a high quality tire, I'm really disappointed that I'm already having trouble with it. It's a shame, because they ride beautifully otherwise.
