Thank you for your reply. I have plenty of room to fit these. I think that these will work very well for me. I plan to mostly ride on paved roads, some wooded trails and small crushed stone trails.

I'll keep an eye on this thread as I'm looking for tires to put on my bike. I had not heard of these Speed Rides. They seem to have good reviews and are priced right.
