    We've been using these tires for a few years now, good for about 4000 miles on the rear, not a huge heavy tire, kinda in the middle and good for touring and commuting.

          Comments about Nashbar Streetwise City Tire:

          I have a garage bike shop for our retirement community and I have replaced the tires on about two dozen bikes from their stock, heavy knobby, gravel, and/or balloon tires to these. They are much lighter and smoother to ride on pavement than most stock mountain bike and comfort bike tires. The 1.5" size is large enough to still give a comfortable ride without excessive weight and resistance to roll of a 2-2 1/2" balloon or knobby tire. You can buy other fancier tires of this size but for my clientele who ride to the store and back or just around the neighborhood, these tires will last longer than them.

              I use these tires on my commuter bike. I get very good value out of them. I commute about 30 miles a week, and these tires typically last several years.

                These replaced some really old hybrid tires on a bike I've had for years. I do most biking on asphalt so these were perfect. They've held up great so far and were very affordable.

                    I have used these tires on several mountainbikes I have converted to street / road use. They roll well and wear fine. Have them currently on my MTB converted to a drop bar touring rig and my drop bar MTB street runner. For the money, they are a good buy. Better when on sale!!

                    Comments about Nashbar Streetwise City Tire:

                    I use these(26x1.5)on my 1990's mtn bike. I ride anywhere from 15 to 40 miles(a session) on the street, 3 to 4 times a week.

                    I like that they are smooth, quiet and have low rolling resitance. When I want to go off road, the wider profile makes it easy to navigate on medium/hard dirt packed trails while retaining good stability.

                    What I don't like is the constant flats. It seems like the material is too soft/thin to protect against thorns, glass, etc. I've flatted 3 times in 6 rides, all from street riding. My previous tires, the Nashbar Slick City 1.25's, never had this much trouble.

                    Won't be buying again.
