    Which tires are better Fatti-o s or Thick bricks. This might be an opinion thing but some opinions couldnt hurt.

    better for what application?

    Both are only available in 24x3...

    Fatti-O's are a semi-slick tire and would get better traction/cornering than the Thick Bricks under just about all conditions. Tread on bike tires used on pavement isn't helpful (at 30-40psi, hydroplane speed is 50-60 MPH!)

    A low-cost, similar tire is the Innova Swiftor in 24x3. I've run them in 26x2, and they are a nice, smooth-rolling tire. They're made with a soft, 'tacky' rubber, and they get excellent traction.
