road tires for my MTB

here in FL all the trails are sand, so I dont ride them. there is however miles and miles and miles of paved paths which I have been riding every week. Most people on the trails are riding road bikes, so that tells you the quality of the paths.

I would like to switch to a road/city tire any suggestions out there?

That's a good price.

Here is what I put on my MTB when I gave up the trails.

They are fun because I can actually lean through turns and put my knee down. LOL

What LR posted up is decent. All you need is something smooth instead of knobbied.
