Have had these in 33mm for a few months now and I think they're great. Mostly used for commuting on LA roads, they're holding up very well, the tires seem to wear very slowly. They've got a ton of grip in corners and give a pretty smooth ride running them at 50psi. No flats so far, not even and road debris stuck in the tires.
Nice tires! The 38 mm variety that I've installed on my bike lends a feeling of stability and confidence, especially in turns. The lower pressure I'm able to run smooths out the road surface nicely. These tires feel "authoritative" as I roll downhill into town.
