    WTB Nano Comp is a good tire for trails and road. I wish I would have bought a few more when Performance had them for $6.99.

    I use IRC Mythos XC II for thre my trails, but I don't ride on the rode/greenway. The Nano did a great job on dry trails (not so good in the wet) and does great on the road.

    I like Kenda Nevegals. Although they don't roll as fast as some, I find that the grip like no other on loose rock, roots, and even mud and hardpack.

    I ride mostly rail trails. Do you think i need knobbies or can I get away with a compromised road tire with relatively normal tread.

    Nope. The Nevegals are definately not good for the road.

    I know it's pain but have you considered switching tires depending on what you are doing that day? I personally have used the Kenda small block 8 on both road and xc but frankly any MTB tire is going to wear quick on asphalt compared to a road tire. It also depends on how much distance you will put on the tire. If your commute is like 2 miles, they should last.

    Just checking the kenda website. They also have these short tracker which have almost 0 knobs. I've never used them but they might be interesting to check out. Less knobs might wear better.
