Seems most like the Mitas E-07 or the Heindau K60. I think the Mitas may take over for the most likes when they can get enough of them to the US. There are two vendors getting the Mitas to the US right now. I'm going to be trying them when they tires I have on now need replaced.

try this

and a search to see what will work best for you. I'm not partial to the K60's but they last forever.

There IS actually a correct answer to your question.
Front: Continental TKC-80
Rear: Heidenau K-60

I've run the tkc 80 and they work, but wear out in 3500 miles on the rear. The front last 14,000. I went to the Heideneau on the rear. They lasted 9500 miles. You need to let some air out when you leave pavement and then they aren't too bad. I just went to the Midtas E7 on the rear and it is my new favorite tire. It is wearing well and out performs the Heideneau on pavement, dirt, gravel, and mud.

ok, you guys have sold me. I was going to try K60s, but I'll give the E07s a try. I know it has been mentioned, but I don't feel bad asking since there are best tire threads dating back to the dawn of time. Source in the states? :)

Good luck. The only sources I've found are Canadian so far. And it's difficult to find anyone that has a good, repeatable, reference number on long term wear on the EO7s yet.

The best tires are new ones.

Take off, eh? No way am I ordering them in English and French from Tim Horton and his merry band of maple syrup slurpers. I'll just have to go with the official 50/50 tire of the world cup! :)

I got mine on ebay. I don't remember the name of the company, but they sell them on ebay. They are in the east and had good service. I'm sure you can find them with a search.
