I quite like the Challenge Grifo that came on my cross bike- I use it for towing the kids to school and for any wet weather riding. Comfy ride and plenty of grip so far. Never have any worries if I come across some loose gravel or have to detour on the grass beside the bike path.

I don't like the schwalbe marathons with greenguard on our tandem.
