well you know the less meat you have to hold the tire up off the road the more likely you are to have a flat. on the dirt roads this always happens, its not the lack of traction...its the rocks causing a flat. rember a bike tire is not like a car tire in it dont have steel belts and its not as thick. a good hard packed dirt road will cut a slick tire all to hell. that tread adds high and keeps alot of this from happening. i have ran tires like yours and mine untill the bare threads show on paved roads, but hit a dirt road for just a few miles and boom FLAT.....damn i suer hate fixing a flat beside the road.

But thats just my experiance over the years.. ask stanley how them smooth tires hold up in the hard dirt poor feller !

anyways,,,, im getting me a new one verry soon and kinda cutting the sharp rocks short for a day or two.
