      I got some nice Kenda tires 2.125 wide that look much like teh old balloon tire bomber tires of long ago.  They were a whim purchase from Nashbar for like $8 a piece.  I stuffed them into my frame and they are remarkably nice.  I don't think they are all that much slower than any other tires I have used, though my Primo Comets are lighter and hence faster.  As far as durability goes, I have no idea!  The Primos were not bad and these appear to be MUCH better durability wise.  But I have only about 50 miles on them so far!

      you get the picture. Here in Southern California. Basically  little or no rain, no dirt. Though I
      will go off-road on occassion for non commuting trips. I was looking at the schwabes? XR
