Whats a good cyclocross tire for a winter commuter?

I'm doing a winter build and just got some challenge grifos for a good price but then learned that they wear out prematurely on ashphalt. Any sugfestions?

Depends what kind of climate we're talking. Also are you racing? I've had very good luck with the Schwalbe X-one and by good luck, I mean it's the only tire I'll run. but if you live in a less rainy tire you might want to look into a wider tire with smaller knobs like the maxxis rambler or the Gravel King. If you're not racing fuck anything smaller than 35 and just run the biggest tire you can fit

Check out 45NRTH tires, either the Xerxes or Gravdal nether are cx tires but are winter commuting specific and will fit on most cross rigs
