A vote here for the Pirelli Sport Demons in the sizes you mentioned. I love how the bike feels with these tires, a tiny bit slower in the steering but feels so rock solid and transitions into turns so smoothly, and really sticky. Not the longest wearing tire in the world, or so I hear, I'm only about 500 miles in. Zero regrets.
