    Michelin XC Dry [2] tires good for asphalt for that occassional city commute?

    I'm reading that it's good for pact dirt and what not. It has low rolling resistance and lower profile knobs. Does this translate to good asphalt riding?

    Are these premium tires? Folding and for both tubeless and regular wheels?

    I'm sorta getting a bit confused with Michelin's model names. There seems to be the Dry and the Dry2, then the XC and the XCR, and then you have other XC tires with other names like All Terrain.

    I plan to put an XC Dry2 26 x 2.0 in the rear of my Jamis XLT. Currently has a Continental Gravity 26 x 2.3, so this will be somewhat of a change in traction and maybe in quality...and weight. The Front currently has a Hutchinson Air Light Scorpion 26 x 2.0 tire.

    edit to add: Does the Dry2 have flat protection?

    The dry2 is fine as a rear road tire. The XCRs wear out prematurely. The sidewalls are not silly thin.
