Kevlar tyres

Hi all

Just purchased a MTB but will mainly use it for roads and will be doing long journeys. I bought some Bikehut kevlar puncture resistant tyres, and as a back up also put slime in the tubes. I am not sure if I should just use slime or buy some decent tyres as the bikehut (I know they are cheapo's) just seem really hard and when travelling at speed they vibrate really bad.

has anyone got any suggestions?

    For roads you can't go far wrong with these. schwalbe kojak race guard tyres. should be able to get a pair for £30 ish. Slimes not the best thing to use as its adding weight which you don't really want, plus its a weird sensation when jumping on the bike after its been sat a while until the slime has redistributed itself around the tyre again.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
