    Spare wheels, tire hints?

    I have FS mountain bike ( Jamis Expert) with a spare set of wheels I use for riding around town and on some fire roads with my wife, was thinking of going towards a thinner easier rolling tire, maybe even use the tire on my indoor trainer, any suggestions for something like this ?
    I was thinking 1.5 to 1.95 width and less then $35 a tire.
    Possibly the following?

    I bought mine from Performance when it was on sales for less than 15 a piece, it's the house brand, but who cares. Check them out, though the website kind of terrible but it should get you started.

    Also check Nashbar. If it's for commuting, cheap one is ok.

    Ended up finding the Specialized Crossroads Armadillo Elite

    Little pricey, but for $10 more I went with the lighter version.

    Make sure you keep the air pressure below the maximum pressure for your rims, to keep from damaging your rims.

    I put these on my 2nd set of wheels which I use for fire roads, around town, light duty trails.
    have not used them much yet, but they seem to roll great on the pavement and have enough knobs for grip in loose.
