I've had quite a few different sets of tires in my days. I don't follow the crowd when it comes to tires as the crowd seems to have a lot of misconceptions about what constitutes a superior tire.
Like most of us, I spend a lot of time commuting but when I hit the trail I need to be confident my tires are going to perform and last.
Here's a sample of some of the tires I've had that are totally streetable yet do the job offroad.
