    Street + light trail useage tire?

    I need to get back into shape before I try to tackle anything serious.

    I want to be on the bike as much as possible, but there are no trails around me so it will be mostly paved riding. Then, I plan on hitting the easy trails at south mountain a couple of times/week.

    What tire would you recommend for a no0b rider who is going to spend alot of time on pavement until his conditioning/skills are ready for some more serious off-road adventures? Bike is a 26er.

    wear cheap tires out on pavement (watch out for cars)

    buy real tires when you move to the dirt full time
