Gear Question

Can anyone commnet on the life expectency...

Can anyone commnet on the life expectency of this tire when used on the road alot. I do about 80% road/ 20 % off CX training. I have a set of Hutchinson wire beads on the bike for the late 12 years that I bought for $15 a piece at th 98 MTB Worlds but Hutch does seem to make that tire anymore.

The speed kings use a fairly soft rubber for mud and off road traction at the cost of longevity. I haven't used my all that much on the road maybe a couple hundred miles and the center section is fairly worn. Maybe 25-40%. Fast enough that I swapped out a pair of Small Block Eights for on-road and gravel conditions.
