/ Recommend me some slick/semi slicks for my MTB please.
Panaracer Paselas are pretty good in terms of a compromise between price, speed, durability and puncture resistance.
Schwalbe Marathons have always worked well for me on roads. Long lasting and a good level of grip on the less well manicured cycle paths we have round Edinburgh.

I have a pair of those, and they certainly seem to do the job.
continental sport contacts on my commuter are great, and came with free innertubes too
And should I go for slicks or semis? Are slicks bad news in the wet?
I've used Schwalbe City Jets in the past; pretty good on MTB wheels, and okay in the wet.
Of course, slicks will send up a lot more spray in the wet than knobblies, so mudguards, especially the rear, are recommended...
been using these for ages on my rigid commuter mtb.
really nice on hardpacked trails as well.
If wanting something slimmer contis gator skins have really good puncture resistance.
thanks for the replies.
And another for for Schwalbe Marathons
I went for Continental City Ride - I'm not a serious cyclist - just wanted better rolling tyres on one of my mtn bikes for riding out of the door to help general fitness, so didn't want to spend on owt fancy. These were a pair for £23 including delivery from Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op on line. Got 'em inside 2 days and they seem fine - just right for my purposes anyway.
I have these:
and my wife has these:
These Nutrak slicks have been superb so far and the price per pair delivered from JMJ is excellent.
Usual - no connection other than satisfied customer.
