Tires for bikes are crazy, I remember the first time I had to buy some from a bike shop. I had just replaced the tires on my car for about 37 a wheel. I almost fell over when they said it was 40 a wheel for my bike.
Well those days are gone(at 37 a wheel I should have invested) I now buy quality tires on my favorite rig I run Compass Stampede Passat 700 x 32 the comfort is amazing and it's still quick an dI love tan walls. You don't have to spend compass money to improve your ride but I would suggest you increase your tire budget on just about any bike you ride.
Some balk at the cost of bike tires and wheels but damn can the difference be huge and when you improve the ride quality you are going to dream of riding around as much as you can.
After that I just heard Compass ha s bunch of new tires, the image below is a giant 650b (48mm). Good god I need a 650b ride now!
