I just retired a set of these tires on my TREK Cross Rip 2. They had 8,0000 + miles on them. I use them for hard surface only, mostly Brevets and training. They wore predictably, hugged the ground tenaciously, cornered securely, and rode quite comfortably when only inflated to 70psi. I never had a flat and the roads here in central Florida are full of scrap and debris.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
