WTB Slick Comp City Tire (Black) (29 x 2.20)
I like these tires; they are fairly lightweight and nice and smooth and fat. However, they wear out quickly. I bike 5 miles a day and it seems like it was only a few months and the threads were starting to show on my rear tire. Also, I had one tire split along one of the divisions between raised tread when it was fairly new; although I may have contributed to the failure by running very low pressure and going up and down sloped curbs.
