    Try the Maxxis Ardent EXOs. The rocks here are brutal on sidewalls.

    I had a pair of those. Pain to set up tubeless without an air compressor. Every Specialized tire I've ever had went on first try with a regular bike pump. The Control sidewalls do seem to rub through pretty quickly though, especially at low pressures...

    Easy fix. Just get the Grid casing. I shred sidewalls like crazy, but the Grid casing has been awesome. For some reason the Specialized shops around here don't carry much of the Grid casing tires, but you can order them.

    How do they roll? Being that this is my only bike, I ride it on pavement as well and don't want to feel like I'm riding over a wet mattress all the time.

    I've ridden the Control casing and the Grid in Butchers and Purgatories. I can't tell any difference in rolling resistance.

    I picked up an Ardent Race EXO for the rear and a Purgatory for the front. Looks like it should be a good combo.
