Replacing My Mountain Bike Tires with Performance Topo FasTracs

We've got about 90 days of riding weather left in Newtown, PA, and I need new mountain bike tires. The old, reliable Continental Double Fighter on the rear wheel of my bike has started to develop holes in the center of the tread. I'm bound to start getting flats long before I do the Tour of Hope Fundraising Ride in Washington, DC in October.

Continental doesn't make the Double Fighter anymore, otherwise I might buy two new ones. Performance Bicycle has a new semi-slick tire that looks a lot like the Double Fighter that I decided to try. They're called Performance Topo FasTrac MTB Tires:

Introducing the new Topo� FasTrac ATB Tire Even faster and lighter than our SemiSlick+! Features cornering knobs strategically made shorter and spaced more closely together for super-smooth transitions into corners, and center grooves that add serious traction. Highest quality 120 tpi casing. Folding. Blackwall. 26x1.90. Wt: 495g.

The Topo FasTrac Mountain Bike Tire is on sale at Performance right now for under $20. I'll put two of them on my bike and see how they ride. If you need replacement semi-slicks now, it's going to be hard to beat this price.
