Can you experienced users please help with a few points? Thanks!

People mentioned these two tires when I posted before about wanting practical city tires for my 26" f/s mb. I'll tire-switch, keeping my knobbies for the dirt and using city tires to cope with paved streets, glass, curb-hopping and general urban hazards. I've checked all the threads and reviews, but have a few question areas I wish I knew more about before I place an order. Also, there's not much info out there on the Big Apples.

BIG APPLE (2.0 size):

- do they corner well on wet streets?
- how is the puncture resistance?
- how difficult are they to get on and off?
- how do the tires perform on city conservation area-type dirt trails?

HEMISPHERE (1.95 size)

- general cornering?
- wet street cornering?
- difficult to get on and off?

If there's anything else you'd like to say about the tires, please do!

I've been running the Big Apple 2.0 on my commuter for the past 2 years (alternating with studded Nokians during the icy months). No problems with mounting/dismounting. No problems with non-technical dirt. No flats yet. I would run the 2.35 or their new SuperMoto if they would fit under my fenders.
