My brother need a street-like tire to replace his old off-road tires. These installed quickly and met the need. They roll nicely on the road but have an inverted tread that helps for little non-pavement use.
Purchased to replace the knobbies on my MTB for regular commuting now. They felt so incredibly solid the first few weeks of use. Then I got a flat. Figured it could have been my riding style, and a pinch. Been riding with these for a few months, and the last 3 months have been ridiculous. I complained about 2-3 flats a month, but I'm on 4 in the last couple of weeks. I would not recommend these at all.
These are known as "the tires on police bikes" which is how I got in the habit of buying them. I wore out a pair in size 1.9 and noticed the gumwall fraying as the tread was about done. Replaced them with 2.1 (noticeably heavier) and the sidewalls went way before the tread did. And for a compromise tire, they are decidedly biased towards pavement. I traded my third pair of T&C for a pair of Continental's own Traffic model, which works much better on dirt while still wearing well on pavement.
