      These tires make my bike feel like a new bike. Low resistance/friction, yet enough grip to handle off road riding. Love 'em.

          Perfect for what I needed

              Comments about Nashbar Streetwise Kevlar Belt City Tire:

              Easy tire to mount, needed no tools and took less than 10 minutes to install on each wheel with new tubes... 700x35 tire mounted on my rims at 32mm exactly (per my calipers)... so all the other reviewers that say these tires run narrower than the markings show, are correct.

              Excellent size, weight, and toughness for my Trek DS hybrid, and they give the bike a sleek "ride-me-fast" look. I'm 6'4", 230lbs., and these tires support the weight of me + my bike very well (I run them at near the recommended max psi, because of the total weight the tires carry). The slick tread with short, small sipes roll much better than the thick, knobby Bontrager tires that originally came on the DS (which I swear slowed the bike significantly when I coasted down inclines). Plus, the Bontragers were loud and buzzy at speed, while these are smooth and nearly silent.

              I ride 70% on suburban, beat up, potholed streets, but also tested these tires on smooth asphalt, grass, gravel, crushed limestone, and I jumped a few curbs too, and the tires performed very well on all these surfaces, with no sense of discomfort or instability. Time will tell re the kevlar belt and flat protection, as well as for durability, but after several hard rides, the tires still look new and are surprisingly unmarked.

              I compared literally 3 dozen bike tires before purchasing these --- these are an excellent width for my rims and bike, acceptable weight (each under a pound), and it's fairly easy to spin them up. The price with the discount that Nashbar runs every now and then was unbeatable...I'm very happy with these tires so far, and wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.

                  Just purchased these tires and had maybe 30 miles on them, picked up a goat-head, punctured the tube and tire and my ride was over. Got some tuffy liners and filled tubes with slime, will see how this works.

                      After experiencing three flat tires in two days, I switched the old Kenda's with my newly acquired Nashbar City Kevlar Belst City Tires. I just purchased 5 pair and recieved them the previous week. Not long enough to make any judegement about durability but they are much lighter. I cound feel the difference right away on my commuter. Feels like a new bike.

                          Tire is marked 700x35, but it's narrower than other 700x35 tires I've used. I think it should have been be marked 700x32.
